Speakers will reflect on student and staff achievements and look ahead to the future of the division.

“I’m eager to share our visions for the future with the community. We have some exciting new strategies that will continue to shape LCS into a beacon of educational excellence starting next year,” Dr. Edwards said.

Dr. Edwards and Deputy Superintendents Reid Wodicka and Amy Pugh will present, and LCS staff members and a student will hold a panel discussion. Performing student groups will include elementary strings students, Dunbar Middle School theatre students, a Heritage High School string quartet, and the E. C. Glass jazz band.

This event is free and open to the public.
