What did you love most about your time at LCA? The friendships I made. I stayed friends with several LCA classmates despite moving out of state. This past summer while working in Atlanta, I was able to reconnect with a friend from my class who now lives there and introduce our children for the first time.

What is one word that best describes the school? Community. LCA was my high school, but I also had classmates who were church mates, a teacher who led a women's Bible study, and coaches and administrators who were family friends.

Tell us about one of your favorite memories at LCA. Cheering for friends on the women's basketball team and our baseball team.
