“Mrs. Vela does an outstanding job supporting LEAD at Smith Elementary School. She is always at the ready to do whatever is needed, and she truly does everything from organizing materials to baking snacks and treats to help with our robust soccer program,” said Maria Allen, Enrichment Program Specialist.
