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,

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.

    I visited the website and was only able to find information about a Roy Ruth, not Ruth Roy…Can you tell me if there is another way to access her information on that site? I have many photos and stories I would like to add.

Got something to say?
