How long have you taught at LCA? Starting year 5!

           Mr. Cheeks and his wife, Brandi.

What is something that most people don't know about you? I don't like chocolate.

When thinking about LCA finish this sentence: "This is where...": I think of all the incredible ways the Lord has blessed me through my time here.

What do students get at LCA that they won't get somewhere else? The assurance that every single person in the building loves them and desires for them to grow in their relationship with God.

Why do you choose to work at LCA? When the circumstances arose, I felt a strong leading from the Lord to take on this ministry opportunity.
