Marion High School alumna Kristy Jones, who was one of the hosts of the recent Martin Luther King Jr. celebration and concert at Indiana Wesleyan University, spoke with the Chronicle-Tribune about one of her inspirations: MHS teacher Bobbie Owensby.

“When I found out she was being honored it was so awesome,” Jones told the C-T. “She has done so much. I use to say ‘I want to be a teacher like Mrs. Owensby.’ You knew that she had high expectations for us. ... She held us accountable."
