Mrs. Sutton was an awesome teacher. She put me in my place and that was hard to do. I always looked up to her. She was so cool I hung out in her class even though I wasn't enrolled.

Ms. Sutton taught me AP English and World History at Ruston High, class of 2000. She was intelligent and witty, and it was a joy to learn from her. She will always have a special place in my heart. I'll never forget how she was given a remedial English class to teach, which she at first dreaded, but then found such pleasure in helping those kids learn and expose them to new ideas.

I am at a lost for words and i truly don't know where to start so I will start by saying Mrs. Sutton was one of the most energetic, positive, kind, loving,caring and understanding teachers I have ever had in my years of education. I would always come into town to visit my mother and grandmother at Ruston High and I would always stop by and visit her. Her smile and jokes would always make me feel welcome. She will truly be missed by everyone in the entire Ruston community.

Mrs. Sutton had a spirit unlike any RHS teacher that I have ever met. She had a beautiful smile and a warm, caring heart. She was spunky and so much fun to be in her class. Rest peacefully. So sorry for your loss. Tracie Davis-Greely, C/O 1992 (Ruston High School)
