My family has this thing where they think moving clear across the country is cool, so I guess it's my turn. Early in my college application experience, I was for sure going to a school in Texas. I even took multiple TCC courses so I would have some kind of “head start” in my future. I applied and t...

I'll never forget my first full day. My first lunch at Legacy was on a Wednesday when they were selling cookies,...

Growing up, I was always told to take time and appreciate the things going on around me, because time flies. Like other kids, I always ignored that until I came to Legacy. I blink...and I’m freshman. I blink again, and I am getting ready to walk the stage. As I walk across the stage, I will think of...
