I am privileged to be with your children at LOMS because I know clearly who they are. They are the future trustees of our communities and of our nation. I believe in them and I know that my positive view of them will make all the difference in how they view themselves and how they meet our expectations, academic, social and lifelong challenges. I know that they will be equipped to embrace a bright, happy and healthy future.
