Children First: Lighthouse Academy

By Stephanie Stang | 

As we all know a lighthouse helps you find your way when you're lost at sea but for some area students it's a school that guides you toward an education. Today teachers at Lighthouse Academy held a Thanksgiving dinner for their students.

Lighthouse is a high school aimed to help students who may be behind in their classes. The school hopes to prevent high school drop-outs. Teachers say for many students the dinner was a chance for them to see what a traditional meal is like. 54 students attend the high school. Many of them go to classes in the morning and work in the afternoon.
