LPS Staff Honored at 35th Excellence in Education Banquet

It was a special evening on Tuesday, April 27, 2021, as the Northland Regional Chamber of Commerce hosted their 35th Annual Excellence in Education Banquet, hosted virtually for a second consecutive year. LPS was well-represented as part of the awards program with several nominees recognized for their commitment to education.
One of the highlights of the evening was when Liberty Middle School Nurse, Kathy Wright, was named to the Exemplary Service Award. Nurse Wright has played a vital role at LMS this year, not only serving students, staff, and families while in the midst of a pandemic, but also provided heroic assistance to a student in need of serious medical attention earlier this semester.
