Over 650 guests gathered for lunch and breakfast this month to celebrate the dreams of our students. The events were a true celebration of the hard work and aspirations of students in our district. Thank you to our generous guests and featured speakers for helping make those dreams come true!
LWSD students inspired everyone with personal stories about the importance of education and the influence for their teachers. Film student Jake Hanna shared his video and dreams of becoming a filmmaker. Students in Mrs. Pomerinke's class at Evergreen Middle School shared their college plans and the success of AVID, a Foundation funded program, which helps them achieve their goals.
The featured speaker at the breakfast event was Seattle Sounders Head Coach Sigi Schmid who spoke of his childhood as an immigrant and the teachers that inspired him growing up. Former Seattle Seahawk and NFL Hall of Famer Walter Jones talked at the luncheon with ESPN Senior NFL Writer and Analyst John Clayton about his dreams to be a professional football player.
A special thank you to Dr. Traci Pierce for her inspirational speech on helping students in our district achieve success and the ability to follow their dreams.
