Students enrolled in Kim Patterson’s and Joanna Zalewski’s fifth grade classes at Bosti Elementary School recently created birthday cards in hopes of putting a smile on the face of autistic savant, Beth Catlin.

Ms. Catlin possesses an incredible mind, and is able to recall the names, addresses and birth dates of the thousands of people she has met throughout the years. In doing such, she creates a handmade piece of paper with the words “Happy Birthday” written on it to be sent to all the friends she has made. 

The fifth graders decided that Ms. Catlin was an individual who deserved recognition, and used their creative talents to design cards to be sent out to her in time for her 60th birthday on Sept. 22.
