Happy Retirement to Ms. Pollie Richardson
Ms. Richardson has been with SCOPE since its inception in 1996. She has worked with more than 10,000 students after
starting the program with five students and five school districts. She watched, nourished and grew
SCOPE; along with her staff, to include eight school districts with four different programs which ultimately became recognized
as a model program with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. She worked with
parents, grandparents, business leaders, community agencies, superintendents, principals, counselors,
administrative assistants, nurses, custodians and wonderful staff members. She devoted her time and
energy in making sure her students saw success in their lives and move on to become productive
members of society.
She will surely be missed as she has been known as the lady with "big hugs". Happy Retirement,
Ms. Pollie Richardson!
