Becoming A Bright Light

I and my family have been associated with Lynden Christian Schools for the past 75 years both as a student and teacher and I can truly say it has shaped my life. Often, I am asked whether I would have done something different rather than be a teacher at Lynden Christian and I emphatically say, …
