Social website honors Ruth Roy
October 29, 2013
Upgrades to the latest search engine parameters of a social media website are being used to honor the memory of an inspirational teacher.
Ruth Roy was a fifth-grade teacher at Apollo Elementary School who helped launch the first full-day program for gifted students in the Issaquah School District. She also helped establish a scholarship in her name after she was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease in 2005.
People touched by Roy continue to share her words of encouragement on the social media website, www.lifestory.com.
It’s free to post, or invite family and friends through Facebook and email. Students, teachers and parents can share their own memories of Roy on the site.
