The Miscoe Hill School students and staff honored a "truly amazing" woman last week in a ceremony to rename the technology lab in her memory.

The room was renamed the "Wernig Computer Lab" in remembrance of longtime Miscoe teacher Liz Wernig.

Wernig, a teacher at Miscoe Hill for 15 years, passed away in December of 2016 after a battle with cancer.

On May 12, students, staff and Wernig's family members assembled at Miscoe for the renaming ceremony.

"When Mrs. Wernig started working at Miscoe, we were lacking in the technology department," said Miscoe Student Council (STUCO) President Walker Penfield. "She certainly had her work cut out for her."

"Mrs. Wernig did not disappoint," continued STUCO Secretary Paige Allen. "She was not only an asset to her students, but to the staff as well."

Several STUCO Members got up to share fond memories gathered from Wernig's coworkers describing her as kind and supportive, and as someone who went the extra mile for students who were different from others.

"Liz was a kind, nurturing, creative soul. Whenever I approached her asking for help for a student in need, she was always open and willing to help," stated a colleague.

Interspersed with the tributes were musical selections including 8th grader Abby Paul, accompanied by 6th grader Josie Delongchamp, singing one of Wernig's favorite songs, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," and a performance by the 8th grade band.

After a reading of the poem "Her Journey's Just Begun," the Student Council unveiled the new sign and plaque that will be a reminder of the educator who touched so many lives.

"This sign will hang inside the lab as a constant reminder to students of Mrs. Wernig's love for art and devotion to our students," said STUCO Vice President Abby Paul.

After the ceremony, Wernig's husband Jimmy, thanked the staff and students and commented that his late wife did not think of her position at Miscoe as work.

"She loved it here; loved all of the kids and staff," he said. "She loved coming to school every day."
