Wilson more than qualified for library post

| May 11, 2023 1:00 AM

I'm writing this in regard to my mother's application as a library trustee.

Mary-Esther Wilson is more than qualified for this position within the community. She has resided and been involved in the community for 10-plus years. If it's time spent in a library, then she more than qualifies.

Throughout my childhood, the community library was utilized by my parents for schooling materials and resources.

Her education level is a cherry on top of many personal achievements. Included but not limited to her managing the second busiest Applebee's in the nation, New York City being the only contender. Raising three successful/motivated adults, just to turn around and start raising two more infants. She's tender, understanding and helpful. I've witnessed her mastery of working well with infants and adults with great efficiency.

Her willingness to embrace a life of less modern comforts foreshadowed her great mental strength. My parents left Logan, Utah, to move to Naples to chase a dream of less reliance on others. The challenges that come with their living situation can't be simulated. It calluses the mind and creates a person of many strengths.

This is my mother.
