"Seeking a good college-match or post-high school plan for each student is an exciting time for students. I enjoy helping our LHS families navigate this process. Most importantly, I want to encourage them to trust in God throughout their journey, remembering His promise to give each person hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
