The Lawson Pioneers graciously hosted the monthly meeting of the Leavenworth Public Schools Education Foundation Board of Directors earlier this week. After a full slate of business, it was time to hear from the Lawson principal, Laura Batson, and students representing various programs of the school. C.J. and Emma shared about the Lawson Leaders, their fundraising efforts, and classroom mentoring they provide to younger students. Mrs. Batson shared, “Young students are now coming up to me asking how they can be Lawson Leaders.
