Emily Bradley was a long-time Barranca Mesa School teacher known for fostering creativity and life-long learning and for her compassion and generosity. Her legacy continues.

Several organizations including Self Help, Inc. sent a tangible message to teachers in our community that they are appreciated especially during these stressful times. Approximately 280 gift packages for teachers were put together thanks to the clay artistry of Thelma Hahn, funding from the Emily L. Bradley Memorial fund, Xi Nu Sorority, and Ruby K’s Bagel Cafe.

Community volunteers and Los Alamos Public Schools students helped to assemble the gifts.
