As people enter the sanctuary of Del Cerro Baptist Church on Sunday mornings, the music has already started. Church member Kathy Worley is at the organ, playing the songs. Listening to the choir director, the other instrumentalists and to the people singing, she adjusts the music to their needs, never playing too loudly, nor drawing attention to herself. Yet she would be dearly missed if she were to suddenly stop playing.

The same goes for her teaching. As a teacher of industrial arts, with the current emphasis on career and technical education, Worley leads the way for young men and women. The West Hills High School teacher was announced as a San Diego County Teacher of the Year in October of this year.
