On March 19, 2019, senior Ruthie Moore had her official signing to attend Covenant College. This will make the fifth Moore child to graduate Laurens Academy and go to Covenant. It’s really amazing and speaks volume that they all worked so hard and be accepted into the same exact college. Not many people can say all their siblings went to the same high school and college. We wish Ruthie all of the best and know she will make everyone proud!
March madness has new meaning this year for many Laurens Academy students. We all witnessed Zion Williamson’s rise to fame during his high school years when he played for Spartanburg Day School and now he is playing for Duke. We felt his pain last week when he had an injury on the court but hopefully he will bounce back soon. Now, Gonzaga has moved to 1st in the conference, North Carolina is in 3rd with Duke now in 4th. And waiting to have Zion back for March Madness. Good luck to all teams participating trying to win.
Next week Laurens Academy’s 9th grade will be making soap in science class with Mrs. Sampson. She’s been teaching at LA for two years now and is one of my favorite teachers. She makes good jokes and keeps it related to the assignment. We will be making soap on Tuesday. Another project we have in her class is on making a Halogen poster. She’s letting us work on the projects in her class and also taking us to the computer lab to print pictures and finish our posters.
