The Principal of Dickinson High School states:
"She is a true champion for kids. She takes a personal interest in our students working tirelessly with many of our most needy to ensure that their needs are met. She has secured clothing, food, counseling services, and many other community support systems for a number of our students.
Many of our children live in extremely impoverished homes where high levels of stress and uncertainty prevail. Their lives are in a constant state of turmoil. Many of them have sought out the comfort of Ms. Wells’ big smile, her open heart, and her tireless energy. Her office has become a safe haven for many of them. We are blessed to have her in our school working alongside my administrative and my counseling staff to ensure that our kids’ needs are met."
