“That spirit lives on in me and I’m sure it lives on in the many others who have worked with Mo,” said Trish Gunshore, who worked with Mo at Anne Arundel County Schools.

On this day each year, Lindale Middle awards a student who personifies Mo’s spirit with the “Mo Gaba Award.” This year, it belongs to Andrew Henn, Mo’s best friend since kindergarten.
