Words cannot express exactly why my mom, Kathy Mitchell, is the BEST mom in East Alabama — Her actions show and tell it all. My mom is always there for me and my two sisters. Behind a GREAT kid is a GREAT mom and THAT IS OUR MOM! My sisters and I are very involved in lots of activities and she is always supportive in anything we do. She was always our room mom when we were younger and is the mom everyone calls on if they need something done. My mom taught in the school System for 4 years and all the students loved my mom. Even today when she sees one of her former students, they will run up to her and say, “Hey Mrs. Mitchell!” She is always very glad to see them and they know it.  My mom makes us and everyone feel very good about themselves. They always tell her how nice she was to them and how much they miss her.   If she were still there, the students would love her — SHE WAS LIKE A MOM TO ALL OF THEM TOO!!!   Even if my mom is busy and tired from a hard day at work, she will sit down with me and my sisters and play a game—she always says, “the memories we are making are more important than anything.” My mother’s love for us is like nothing else in the world.    

Now you can see why I said … words cannot express exactly why my mom is the BEST mom in East Alabama — LIKE I SAID HER ACTIONS SHOW AND TELL IT ALL!!!

 The Opelika-Auburn News, The Hotel at Auburn University and Ariccia Trattoria and Bar would like to thank everyone who participated in the Best Mom in East Alabama contest. We would also like to wish every mother in East Alabama a Happy Mother’s Day.
