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.
LCS research student, Kylah Blough, submitted her research for a contest hosted by a Florida company, Ocean Optics, to try and get a piece of equipment that is needed to improve the quality of her research. She won third place for her science communication piece, which is a $1000 equipment credit to get what she needs.
Tracey Jones, head of the Spectroscopy Star project at Ocean Optics, had this to say about Kylah, “Our staff really enjoyed your UV light reflectance video and we learned something in the process! To be involved in spectroscopy at such a young age is quite inspiring to all of us here at Ocean Optics. Thank you for your very informative submission!”
Blough was up against professionals across the spectrum in engineering and science, and has made her case for support of her research; just like scientists do by writing grants!
