Ms. Kioshi Kelly was born July 15, 1958 , she attended Thomas Nelson Community College getting her Associates Degree in children education. Kiosha Kelly was a firm believer in Adventist Education and her greatest desire was for her children to be taught of the Lord in a Christ like environment, which is the reason she enrolled her oldest child, Dale in Calvary Seventh Day Adventist School, during the mid 1980's. In addition, Kioshi understood the value as well as the sacrifice she needed to make in order for her children to receive an Adventist Education, she applied and was hired as a Teacher Assistant at Calvary Adventist School. This job allowed Kioshi to provide and maintain financial assistance for her child attendance at Calvary Adventist School. As a young single mother, she understood the important of the text found in Proverbs 22:6. Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Kioshi was an excellent Teacher Assistant, and honored to have worked with such a devoted, caring, dedicated, and loving person as Kiosha Kelly in the field of Adventist Education for the salvation of children. Kioshi life journey may have been interrupted for a little while, but we pray and hope all God's faithful students will soon meet the Master Teacher, study throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity, sit at his feet and be blessed. After that she transition to hospitality working 4 years for In-Town Suites and within that time became head house keeper, while also working a second job at McDonald's. She loved anybody that loved her, she is acknowledged for her hard work, her spirit, her beloved hugs and smiles. She will greatly be missed.
