Alumnae Return to LHSN

Sydney Cross, Class of ’07, recently returned to LHSN to talk about her role as a diplomat with the U.S. State Department. Since graduating from North, Trinity University (bachelor degree) and Howard University (master’s), Sydney has lived in Vietnam, Tanzania, Mexico, and Washington DC. Current Crusaders enjoyed hearing about the exciting career experiences Sydney has had.

Rachel Seiler, Class of ’13, is a singer/songwriter living in Nashville. In a recent chapel assembly at LHSN, Rachel sang four Christian songs including two of her original works. She referenced scripture, which tied in with the lyrics of her songs. Students and faculty were enriched by Rachel’s music and words.

Both young ladies are appreciative of the training they received at Lutheran North, as well as the encouragement to pursue and achieve their dreams. We’re glad they returned to share their success with us!

Crusaders Put Faith in Action

Last Friday, students and faculty alike boarded buses and went out into the community to lend a helping hand. They spent the morning planting trees, doing yard work, packaging food, playing with preschoolers, painting, moving furniture, etc. Take a look…
