Ruth_Pace_smRuth Pace was among the county’s first kindergarten teacher assistants. She worked 22 years, from 1971-93, in East Flat Rock, Hillandale and Upward elementary schools. She read to students, helped them draw and cope, and pulled loose teeth. Very nurturing, Pace was like a mother, nurse, counselor and nanny in children’s formative years.
