Sixteen Laurence Manning Academy Anchor Club members joined one student from Thomas Sumter Academy in preparing and serving a meal recently at the Samaritan House Emergency Shelter in Sumter. These students served turkey, dressing, gravy, green beans, peas, rolls, cranberry sauce and dessert. They prepared the meal themselves, and had a little help cooking the turkeys. A special thanks to Dr. Kimber Jordan for her turkey-baking skills. It was a blessing to watch the students prepare plates and serve it to the guests at the shelter. These students represented LMA and TSA well.
