I will miss the people at Legacy. The teachers are so kind and really care for you, and the students are all so fun to be around,” said Morris.
Principal Jones added, “Grace takes school very seriously and has always been committed to doing her best. She has been a model student in the class and on campus. Grace is very competitive on the basketball court and a great team leader. She has a big future ahead of her.”
