Felix Espada

Fondest Memory of Your Time at Lansingburgh High School

My fondest memories all lie within my extra circulars. Whether it was the sense of family I found in drama club, the laughter we brought to mock trial, the nostalgia dance club brought back, the really bad karaoke sessions on the way back from a volleyball game, or dancing around bugging Coach Foard on the track. My after school activities and the people they brought me will forever hold a special place in my heart.

Lansingburgh CSD Teacher/Staff Thank Yous and Shout Outs

I would like to give a huge shoutout to Ms. Baldassari and Mr. Shuttleworth. They both have helped me so much in ways they don’t even know. I truly owe them so much for listening to me rant every day and giving me a space to feel safe and welcomed.

I will be attending SUNY Genesee Community College for Criminal Justice and to play volleyball.
