Lakeland Christian SchoolOne of the core values of LCS is the belief that we are partnering with parents in the Christian education of their children. We believe that mutual respect, communication and involvement by all partners is essential for success of our mission.LCS is a school. We believe that being a Christian school and being a top-flight academic institution should not be mutually exclusive. On the contrary, we take the mandate of Colossians 3:23 that calls us to strive to be the best. We provide a variety of rigorous, engaging, academic and co-curricular activities that enable students to identify and express the full range of their unique gifts and abilities.
WHAT LED YOU TO LAKELAND CHRISTIAN SCHOOL?
A friend told me about the open position as Administrative Assistant to Dean Johnson, in the guidance department; and since I was going to transfer my daughter to LCS in about a year… I decided to apply! I worked in the Secondary Office from January 2006 until November 2010, when we moved to Birmingham, AL. I returned a year later (in Nov. 2011), and began working in the Admissions Department. By the summer of 2012, I was promoted to registrar!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOUR LCS JOB?
I find great joy in helping new families become part of LCS. I personally know the impact that LCS has in shaping the future of a child, which flows over to the parents as well. I’m very thankful to be a part of an organization that not only strives – but succeeds – in making a difference!
