I'm excited to be on staff this year as your guidence secretary/ELC. In the ELC room students can make up missing assignments and take courses that don't fit into their schedule through a system called PLATO. My husband and I are proud parents of a Randolph Southern 2013 graduate,Gary. We also have two other sons, Samuel, which is a freshman, and Joseph, which is in sixth grade. I'm looking forward to a great year!
