(WTXL) - Tallahassee's Elder Care Services is celebrating the 100th birthday of one of their foster grandparent volunteers.

Amanda Gee has served for 20 years at George W. Munroe Elementary School in Quincy, Florida.

Gee was born in 1918 in Quincy and was the eldest of thirteen siblings.

After her retirement in 1997, Gee came to Elder Care Services, wanting to remain active, and was placed at the school where both of her grandchildren attended.

Elder Care says as a foster grandparent, Gee has mentored hundreds of children, providing consistent attention and support.

Gadsden County Schools Superintendent Roger Milton also stopped by to congratulate Gee.

Milton, who was one of Gee's students, says she is a huge inspiration for him and everyone in Gadsden County.
