Thoughts and Prayers for the family...Barbour County Schools were so lucky to have such a dedicated teacher among the ranks. She not only did she have me as a student in her class, but also, had my Mother, Gloria Moore...Awesome Teacher.

Dear Family...Mrs. Proudfoot was my favorite teacher at PBHS. She truly cared for each one of her students. When I would see her out and about, long after I graduated, she always had encouraging words for me and a "pat on the back" for whatever was going on in my life. I loved her and still do. Rest in peace, Mrs. Proudfoot.

Mrs. Proudfoot was one of the best teachers I had while attending PBHS. She challenged you as a student to do your best and you could see her satisfaction when you met the challenge. She pushed you to be the best you could be and am forever thankful. She was a good person.
