With the holidays fast approaching sometimes we are forced to celebrate without special loved ones we wish were here. The Sneads community is suffering the loss and in deep mourning over the loss of Mrs. Paula McClamma. For over 30 years she was part of the Sneads High School Pirate family and served as an amazingly organized secretary/bookkeeper. She experienced a very rewarding career including earning the name of School Related Employee of the Year several times over the years. She was not just an employee, or a friend, she was family.
Throughout life God gives us the gift of important people who will mold and change our lives forever. McClamma was one of those gifts. She was a beautiful soul and hero to the community. She is remembered by many for her loyal dedication as a kind, loving, and caring individual. She was a special pillar of the community and proved to be the backbone of Sneads High School with her special understanding and patience when stressful situations would arise. She always seemed to know just what to say and just what to do to make everything better. She was like the calm before the storm, she knew how to navigate through the storm, and how to restore the peace after the storm.
McClamma touched the hearts of many and will truly be missed especially now as Christmas will not be the same without her. Her memory will live on through the hearts of those who knew and loved her best.
With much love Mrs. Paula McClamma you lived a beautiful and honorable life of a Pirate and will always be remembered for how beautiful you were inside and out. Once a Sneads Pirate always a Sneads Pirate! Thank you for shining your light and leaving your imprint on this world.
