Notes for Lauren

Lauren, it was always great working with you! Thanks for all the brilliant support you provided to M&C. Congratulations and have the best time doing the next thing!

Congrats, Lauren! So proud of you! I’m so glad I got to work with you when you were a chamberlain! I hope Texas is treating you well!

Godspeed in your next steps! You’ve brought a lot of energy to all you’ve done here at King’s. And we’ve enjoyed having you as part of the JCS major.

I am so so very glad I get to know u, cant wait to see what all you are up to!!

Lauren! I am so incredibly proud of you! You swept into this city and took it by storm. Your strength and determination is evident in everything you do. You are a powerful woman who knows how to accomplish anything you put your mind to and I can’t wait to see how a college degree empowers you even more! ♥️

I am so proud of you! It has been so amazing watching all of your talent and accomplishments for these past few years. You are going to do amazing things sista!

My sweet Lauren,

I am not totally sure how the girls laying in the street are finished with college. You’re one of the best things that life has given me and I’m forever grateful for Kings and SBA putting us together. I am insanely proud of all that you’ve accomplished and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you. Remember you’re always welcome in the city if you ever decide Texas isn’t good enough (it isn’t 😉 )

I love you to the moon and back.

Love always,

Lauren! Congrats on graduation and your post grad adventures. I wish you all the best my fellow Texas gal! 🙂

Thanks for coming back to your home state and joining us at LGT. I’m so blessed to work with you AND call you a friend. And look at you miss smarty pants with the Cum Luade. Congrats! 🤍🪩

sweet Lauren, I am so grateful for your friendship! Your kind and hardworking spirit have helped me be a better person. I am in awe of your accomplishments, and can’t wait to see all that you go and do!

Lauren! Congrats on graduating and already kicking off your career! Will miss giving out free advice to SBA freshmen in Megan’s office with you and (barely) losing to you in CupPong. Excited to see where you go from here!
