What did you love most about your time at LCA? Relationships with other students and with teachers/coaches. I felt very invested in as a person during my time at LCA whether that was in the classroom or on the field/track. I could not have asked for anything more!
What is one word that best describes the school? Close-knit. I had fantastic friendships from my schooling and that was because I had grown up for years with the same people. We became family by the time we were graduating.
Tell us about one of your favorite memories at LCA. Playing for a state championship in soccer.
From your own experiences, why do you believe it was important for you to attend LCA? I was confident in the foundations of most of my friendships because at some level the root was Jesus. He allowed me to have friends at a young age where He was the connecting point. That helped me continue in that pattern through college as I made friends.
In what ways did LCA prepare you for college and beyond? Educationally I could not have been more prepared for college. I knew how to study because of the way my teachers pushed me. I knew how to interact with people who were older than me because my teachers truly didn't look down on me and that has helped me in many working relationships since then.
