    Dear Scecina Memorial Community,

    Recently, Sister Lavonne Long, O. S. F., called me and then sent a letter from her heart and from her room in the Motherhouse in Oldenburg. She asked if I would share her letter with our Scecina community; the answer was unhesitatingly “yes.” As a tireless advocate, cheerleader, counselor, and friend, Sister Lavonne will always be a gift to Scecina Memorial High School. Click on this link to see a copy of her signed letter. Thank you for reading it.
