On this gusty, snowy, cold morning, (brrr!) we were pleasantly surprised by a delivery of doughnuts and hot cocoa! Our secretaries came around to each class with the goodies. Not only did the cocoa warm our hands, but their thoughtfulness also warmed our hearts! We love you, Sharon and Cindy!

Former Legacy student, Jordan, returned to address our student body and focused on Hope. “Hope can be abundant. Hope can also be fleeting. Hope helps you to keep fighting.” Jordan expressed her insecurities upon enrolling at Legacy and about her struggle with the tough decisions she faced. Ultimately, she enrolled in the Pharmacy Tech program at Mountainland Technical College while still in high school. She finished at the top of her class and said, “It showed me I was capable of excelling in the real world.” Jordan has had many successes since graduation and has an inspiring personality.
Our students enjoyed a break from classes to make a fabric wreath and utilize their creativity. The first step was to select a fabric of their choice. Secondly, they needed to use the sewing machines to connect two long strips and then fold the fabric lengthwise and sew along the cut edge. The next step was to turn the tube right-side out and press it flat. For the fourth step, they returned to the sewing machines to sew a straight line creating a pocket wide enough to thread around the wreath form.
We had the opportunity to hear from the Shelter Manager at The Center for Women and Children in Crisis, Laurie Loader, and present her with a donation of 22 quilts made by Legacy students. She explained the purpose of the shelter is to serve survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault through support, education, safety and hope. Domestic violence knows no boundaries and can happen to anyone at any age. Laurie explained several important concepts: the Cycle of Violence; the Power and Control Wheel; and the Equality Wheel. The shelter has a 24/7 hotline: (801) 377-5500
