Seeking to foster the volunteer spirit in middle school students, LCR instituted the Service Above Self Award at Central Junior High in Lawrence, KS. Kelsey Taylor was awarded the honor in an all-school assembly in May. Her work with the Girl Scouts, serving as a mentor for the K-6 camps and with the Boy Scouts in planning a night prowl for younger scouts earned her a $150.00 check. Miss Tayor attended a Rotary meeting in June to talk about her volunteer work.
Pam Mitchell was award the Teaching Excellence Award on April 22, 2007.
Ms. Mitchell teaches second grade at Deerfield School.
