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!
