Quote from teacher: “Leia lives her life with intention (and a smile),” said Kelli Tuller, principal. “Her commitment to her school, herself, and those around her is to be commended. She balances her academics, extracurriculars, and outside obligations without a hitch, and is always willing to lend a hand.”
