Lakeland Christian School

One 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.

We are truly blessed to have such wonderful faculty, staff, administration, students and LCS families. So, when one of our team transitions into another season of life, we are all moved and touched by the changes. Here are a few of the magnificent people who have invested time, love and care into the LCS family and are now moving on, to a new chapter in their story.

Terri Evans, Secondary Bible, English and Theater

Teri Evans and her family
Dedication Ceremony 2016
  1. How long have you been with the LCS family?
    • I have been teaching at LCS for 24 years. I started in 1997. However, I became part of the LCS family in 1992 when my son Danny entered 7th grade at LCS. My other three children (Trisha, Joshua, and Julie) began attending LCS in 1993.
  2. Do you have a most memorable moment at LCS?
    • The new athletic center (REAC) was to be named after my husband and dedicated at the football game on October 27, 2016. All of our children and grandchildren made plans to come for the dedication. Somehow, we kept this secret from my husband for months. However, his condition worsened, and at the beginning of that week, his doctors decided to perform surgery on Wednesday, October 26. Since there was NO way he would make the game the next night, a group of LCS administrators and staff showed up in the waiting room at the hospital and dedicated the REAC in front of a very small audience (our family). He was absolutely baffled and humbled. The hospital staff immediately whisked him to surgery as soon as that small event was over. However . . . the next day, Roger asked his doctors for a pass to go to the game. Through a lot of rigamarole (Alabama word), he was given a four-hour pass where he was able to accept the plaque (again) during halftime. Surrounded by so many who had faithfully prayed for us during our three-year journey, we knew we were truly loved by the Body of Christ.

3. What will you miss the most about your LCS job?

I will miss just about everything. I will miss my students, my co-workers, and my administrators.

4. What do you hope to leave as your LCS legacy?

I hope my students remember my teaching them that nothing is as important as a relationship with the Lord. I hope they remember that I loved them all of the time, and enjoyed them most of the time.

5. What will retirement look like for you after LCS?

I am retiring to help out with the newest addition to my family, AKA Baby Katie. I plan to continue living with my daughter Trisha and her family in Lakeland, but I will spend half of each week with my daughter Julie (Katie’s mother) who lives in Orlando. I still plan to be very involved with LCS, directing the musicals and plays as well as attending the football games, soccer games, basketball games, and recitals of my grandchildren.

Baby Katie

Kay Henry, Kindergarten Teacher

Mrs. Henry with her family
  1. How long have you been with the LCS family?
    • I have been teaching at LCS for 20 years-6 years 1st grade and 14 kindergarten.
  2. Do you have a most memorable moment at LCS?
    • I have had so many wonderful memories!
  3. What will you miss the most about your LCS job?
    • I will miss this loving family. Over the years when  we had loved staff move to heaven, we came together to love and support each other and the families. I love how we rejoiced with each other over weddings, grandbabies. I love the way we love and care for each other. Thank you for the prayers, texts, cards, and gifts  when I was so sick recently. I’m sure I will miss each of you so much.
    • Our school parents are amazing! They love and care for us. I appreciated all the support over the years. I now have so many cherished friends. Not to mention all my little bears over the 20 year!! I’ve had the best classes ever!
  4. What do you hope to leave as your LCS legacy?
    • Legacy? Operation Christmas Child- God put it on my heart 20 years ago when Nancy Snyder had the elementary students(not sure which grade) perform a play involving Operation Christmas Child. It was awesome. The next year I got permission to start the shoebox drive. We’ve touch thousands of lives for Jesus. This year was our highest number of boxes-480 and began a Shoebox Kids Club.
  5. What will retirement look like for you after LCS?
    • We plan to sell our house, purchase a motor home, travel, and then relocate in Colorado Springs, Co. to be near my daughter and new son-in-law(since August). Hopefully, be a grandma one day(not anytime soon). We talked about wintering back here-not sure we can handle the snow.😉

Please join me in honoring these wonderful people who have given their lives to educate the children of LCS. If you, or your child, has been impacted by these lives, reach out and give them a “Thank you.” As we sincerely thank them for their time, effort, and love for the LCS family!
