How I Remember the Leelanau School
I first attended Leelanau during the summer school program. It’s so beautiful up there in the summer by the lake with so many biological resources to learn from. So many great memories, friends and faculty. I really enjoyed the sports programs as well. It’s funny cause in the Kindle dorm room we would have competitions with our stereo systems. Many of my bad lyric rap CD’s were confiscated lol, now I’m in the music business and always try to keep my records clean, but keep my bass knockin!
How the Leelanau School Impacted My Life
I would not be where I am today without Leelanau; it made a huge impact on my life. My first two years of public high school my grades were terrible and I was unmotivated. Leelanau made it fun for me to learn again I excelled academically, became class president, got straight A’s and got into a great college.
