New Memories to Make
at Morning Pointe
As a New Year starts and an old
one ends, we contemplate what
brought us joy, and we think of
our loved ones and our friends.
Recalling all the happy times,
remembering how they enriched
our lives, I think of you.
Thanks to all of our volunteers
and for being one of the reasons
we will have a Happy New Year
and may everyday glow with
happiness! Happy New Year

Grace Robinson
Part of Morning Pointe Family
Grace Robinson, born on May 21, 1930,
has always had such compassion for
children and animals, and very large
dreams that she soon figured out would
come true.
When Grace was in the fifth grade, she
had a teacher who would read to her
right before lunch. The stories were always
about traveling, and one story in
particular gave her the inspiration to
travel - the Great Wall of China.
She says, “My fifth grade teacher reading
me the stories is what inspired me to
become such a traveler.”
When she graduated from high school,
she moved on to attend Averett
University in Danville, Virginia for two
years. She then transferred to Florida State
University in Tallahassee, FL.
She graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree
in Psychology and she also received her
Minor is Sociology.
“I was interested mainly in children, and I
loved psychology so I went for it,” says
After graduating she decided to teach
young children, so from 1954–1958 she
taught in Chattanooga Public Schools.
Then she decided to follow one of her
dreams, traveling. She made a career out
of teaching English in foreign countries
like, China and four other countries
around the world. “They were so eager to
learn our English language in China,
which made it a ball to teach. I love the
Chinese, they have a special place in my
heart because they seem to welcome
Americans," says Grace.

neither be thou dismayed, for the Lord thy
God is with thee wherever thou goest.”
