After 21 years in the Army, Sgt. Donna Rayford retired to the quiet life of …. teaching ROTC students at Lincoln High School.
The job quickly became something of a love story between Rayford and the 140-plus students she worked with every year, and around the holidays that love came through.
“I knew some of my students lived in homes where there wasn’t going to be a Thanksgiving turkey and traditional meal,” Rayford said. “Some of them might not get a meal at all.”
