“I wonder how Brenda feels that everyone in the school loves her?” said junior Drew Blair. Blair is very accurate with his statement that everyone in the school loves Varga. Whether she’s brightening a student’s day by giving a friendly smile or giving students one of her delicious cookies, Varga certainly has a positive impact at SPASH.

“It’s a great honor to be named Ma Homecoming because there’s a lot of other deserving staff so I feel really good about it,” said Varga.
