Senior Spotlight



Brinlee Gant is loving, caring, and bubbly.  Her personality is a great fit for her future plans in early childhood education.  She is hoping to become an elementary teacher one day.  Brinlee has enjoyed her time at LCA and is thankful that she has attended a school where she can pray and learn about God daily.  She will miss her friends and her Cross Country team.  Brinlee has been a part of Beta Club, National Honor Society, Volleyball, and Cross Country during her time at LCA.  She enjoys running, reading, and writing in her free time.  Her favorite verse is "Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in faith, and in purity."  1 Timonthy 4:12




Peighton Reynolds is dependable, honest, and empathetic.  She has an interest in missions and is thankful for the children LCA is able to sponsor in Jamaica.  Peighton is excited to be a part of this years LCA Jamaica trip.  This will be her first mission trip, but she hopes it will open the door for future opportunities.  Peighton is planning on attending Florida College in the fall, where she will be studying Occupational Therapy.  She enjoys photography in her spare time and would one day like to visit Hawaii.  Her favorite verse is "I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken."  Psalm 16:8
