LCS Alumni Are Changing the World for the Better
Mel Ellis, LCS class of '11
I'm an LCS alum from 2011. I'm currently working in a child and adolescent mental health facility after earning my A.A. and B.A. in psychology, with plans to start studying toward my Psy. D. in clinical psychology with an interest in individuals with severe and chronic psychopathology problems, specifically in adolescents. LCS is important to me because the teachers and curriculum provided a solid base for my faith and relationship with Christ. Some of the Bible verses that we memorized in school still pop into my head today. It was at the suggestion of one of the LCS teachers that I took a look at counseling as a career. There was never a question in my mind that the teachers and staff truly cared about me and the development of my faith.
Cristin Spielman, LCS class of '05
I graduated from LCS in 2005. I received my Bachelor's of Science in 2008 at Colorado State University for Human Development and Family Studies with a minor in Spanish. I spent five years working as a case manager with a children's mental health program. I currently work full time as a professional wedding and portrait photographer, and work part time for Life Matters at Life Choices as the Teen Advocate Program Coordinator-- a youth ministry focused on educating students about God and how to glorify Him by making good sexual life choices. LCS is important to me because I learned deep theology, excellent communication skills, and an appreciation for God, His purpose for us, and making my life and time count for His Kingdom!
Ty Joseph, LCS Class of '03
I graduated from LCS in 2003. I received my Bachelors of Science in Theology from Manhattan Christian College and spent several years working as a police officer. For several years after that I lived with at-risk youth at Boys Town, teaching them life skills and social skills at. Now, I’m a full time dad.
Dana Wilson, LCS Class of '07
I graduated from LCS in 2007. I am now a veterinary technician and a small business owner. I graduated from Front Range Community College with an Associates of Arts degree and am now attending Penn Foster for my Associates of Applied Science. LCS is important to me because it instilled a strong sense of family among friends, mentors, and teachers. I personally feel like I had a very safe and controlled environment compared to a lot of my friends who went to public schools. I definitely plan to send my children here!
Audry Braun, LCS Class of '11
I graduated from LCS in 2011. I attended the University of Wyoming for my undergrad, receiving my Elementary Education degree. I have taught for two years, and am working towards earning my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction through CU Denver. LCS is important to me because it laid a strong foundation for who I am. I feel that my leadership skills, my faith, and my passion for helping others all stemmed from my time at LCS.
