I am a freshman at Ladywood. When I shadowed at Ladywood, I knew immediately this was where I wanted to spend the next four years of my life. Choosing Ladywood was the easiest decision I have ever made. I came from a school where no one had heard of Ladywood and no one I knew was coming here. Over the summer, I had the opportunity to participate in volleyball training at Ladywood and I met many incoming freshman. That made the first day of school much easier since I knew some of my classmates. Also, the teachers made coming here an easy transition. They are always willing to help you no matter what. The teachers will challenge you, but they want to make sure you succeed.
Ladywood does a lot of community service. Every grade has a certain number of service hours to do, however, it is recommended that you do more than your assigned number of hours. Once a year Ladywood does a service day. On that day, Sister Felicity, our campus minister, begins the day with a prayer service. After the prayer service, each service team is sent to their service project place. A few of these organizations include: Vista Maria, Blight Busters, The Saint Joseph Care Center, and many more. I had the opportunity of going to the St. Joseph Care Center. During my time there, I was able to meet many of the who are part of the Felician-sponsored ministry. Visiting the nuns was such a wonderful experience - it was wonderful to know that we lifted their spirits and brightened their day.
If you choose Ladywood you are choosing to be part of one big family. To me, being a Blazer means that I have one large family that I get to spend every day with. It means being accepted and being yourself. It also means standing together as one and never letting each other down. Ladywood is a great school and I hope to see you here next year.
