Please join us in congratulating one of our outstanding school counselors, Sarah Lahn-Roberts. Ms. Lahn-Roberts was recently recognized at the 12th Annual Excellence in Education Awards Dinner.
The annual award celebrates the contributions of outstanding educators in our community, all of whom are making a significant impact in the daily lives of students and in their schools.
Principal at Eagle River High School, Marty Lang, has many glowing remarks to share about school counselor, Ms. Lahn-Roberts, "Walk into her office, and no matter what might be going on, she'll make you feel like she's ready to set it aside and be fully present with you. This is Sarah's gift, being present with others, and she uses it every day to touch the lives of those around her. Sarah is passionate about getting individuals the support they need so they can lead healthy and productive lives."
