2018 Graduates

Congratulations to all the 2018 high school and college graduates!
We’d like to give a special “congrats” to two of our very own.

  • Jadie Riffe, an LRC PEP counselor and a 2018 graduate of Chain of Lakes Collegiate High School

  • Lacie Walls, an LRC office & event volunteer as well as a summer program counselor and 2018 graduate of George Jenkins High School
    We appreciate your hard work and dedication to not only serving the Learning Resource Center and this community, but in your studies and educational successes, as well.
    We know you both will continue to excel, and we wish you the best in all to come!

Among the students returning to Polk County School classrooms, over 200 high school juniors and seniors entered classrooms taught by Learning Resource Center instructors. LRC faculty taught classes in ACT Preparation and College & Career Planning at Chain of Lakes Collegiate High School.
COL is a public school chartered by Polk State College on its Winter Haven campus, and its students are enrolled in both high school and college classes. Since PSC faculty does not return until next week, LRC was invited to run mini-courses, offering enrichment not often an option in the regular schedule.
Principal Bridget Fetter utilized a mismatch in scheduling to provide a propitious opportunity for students to improve their critical test-taking skills and to take time to explore education goals and career paths.
