Leslie Montemayor Smith was the center of attention by Henryetta fourth graders this past week. A teacher at Henryetta elementary, she also spends time as a member of the Army National Guard and was recently promoted to the rank of Sergeant First Class. The students and fellow teachers were not about to let that occasion slide by so they gathered in the school entry way and surprised her with a banner and well wishes.
