Story by Areesa Steele – Editor-in-Chief

As of this year, there has been many new staff members added to LSN. One of those new staff members that has been playing a big role in student’s success. Rocel Wright has come to LSN to be the college/scholarship coordinator.

   “My favorite part about this job is being able to help students and I love the people that I work with. The entire staff is very welcoming and working with the Counseling Team is pretty awesome! They definitely made my job transition a lot easier and more fun,” Wright said.

   As a new staff member, it’s important for her to be involved with the students and staff on a daily. Many students have seen the announcements she makes in their mentoring classes through Schoology. As of right now, she is not involved with any other activities in the school.

   “I am currently not involved with any school activities because I am still trying to get familiarized with the school district,” Wright said.

   Every staff member has at one point been involved in a different job outside of the school district. Wright has been a part of a few different jobs, one of which include working with another school.

   “I worked for North Central Missouri College in Trenton, Missouri as a Student Accounts Specialist and I also worked side by side with the Financial Aid Office helping students get their FAFSA submitted, then I worked for the Lee’s Summit License Office as a Motor Vehicle Specialist,” Wright said. 

   To get to where she is at now, it took a lot of hard work and patience. Wright has dedicated herself in the schooling world to get up to her Bachelors Degree and Transfer Degree.

   “I went to Ramon Magsaysay Technological University in the Philippines and got my Bachelors Degree in Biology. I also got my AA Transfer Degree in North Central Missouri College in Trenton, Missouri,” Wright said.

   Wrights’ main goal is to add scholarship opportunities that will help the students. With the right information, many students will be able to get to where they want to be. It takes a special person, like Wright, to be committed to helping students.
