Thank you Ashley Thomas for nominating Jodi Smith from Goliad Elementary for the

Golden Apple Award!! Townsquare Media and Gone Bananas would like to give Ms. Smith from Goliad Elementary the Golden Apple Award.  Here is what Ashley had to say about Jodi.

My husband and I both feel deep gratitude towards Ms. Smith.  After being told by 75% of our son's speech therapists that our autistic son would never speak, she helped flip a switch on in him we had never seen.  Not only did he start speaking, he started writing, has learned math as well as socializing with his peers.  We are very thankful for the life changes that brought us to Goliad 3 years ago which led us to Ms. Smith and our son we know today.
