Serve Daily - - BUILDING COMMUNITY - By Lana Hiskey

Donna “Nana” Baller, a grand­par­ent vol­un­teer at Or­chard Hills El­e­men­tary School in San­taquin, was hon­ored by KSL’s High Five re­cently for her many hours of ser­vice. Lori Prichard from KSL and Julie War­ren, Nebo district el­e­men­tary direc­tor, sur­prised Nana and the class on the 10th an­niver­sary of Or­chard Hills El­e­men­tary.

Kim An­drews said, “Nana has worked in my class­room for the past four years. She is very pleas­ant and loves stu­dents of all ages. She has a won­der­ful at­ti­tude and is al­ways ready and will­ing to serve.”

The school em­ploy­ees said it is not un­com­mon to have chil­dren run­ning up to Nana in the halls and giv­ing her a smile and a hug. She is in­valu­able to the school. They can al­ways count on her for an en­cour­ag­ing word or smile. Nana loves gar­den­ing, BYU, camp­ing in her mo­tor home, be­ing crafty and help­ing oth­ers, es­pe­cially kids. She also serves in her com­mu­nity of San­taquin.
