LAUREL HILL — Lauren Gordon plans to attend Northwest Florida State College in the falland earn a degree in psychology.

And the accomplished student and athlete will have a little help to pay for her education. 

True leader

Gordon is the president of Laurel Hill School's senior class and Fellowship of Christian Athletes group, she's the school's Beta Club vice president and is active in the Leadership Club.

On top of it all, she balanced playing varsity sports and work while maintaining a 4.0 grade point average.

And for such achievements, the 18-year-old has earned the city's $1,000 scholarship.

The honor comes as no surprise to Gordon's supervisor at work, Red Raspberry and Boutique owner Donna Howard.
