r 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.
