“I cannot help but smile when I think of Lauryn. We share such funny memories and I know I will never forget her. Lauryn has always been someone I could rely on to have deep, meaningful conversations, while also finding humor within those conversations. History wasn’t her favorite subject, but Lauryn always had a smile on her face and worked hard. She would take time out of her busy days to stop in to catch up with her old teacher. Those moments would really make my day!

“In addition to academics, Lauryn has proven herself to be a role model on the volleyball court. She is patient, kind, and helpful to the younger players. I cannot wait to see what the future entails for this awesome young woman.”

— History teacher Vanessa Cleys
