Jenna is described as having a positive outlook, willingness to help others, and the tasks presented before her are always accomplished. She enjoys learning, is respectful to others and has a drive that is unstoppable. These are just a few of the reasons she was chosen by the faculty of L-FL to represent the school and was awarded Dogger of the Quarter. Jenna was surprised, believing she was in trouble when called to the office, but feels honored to represent the Doggers.
Kyland Fuller, the son of Lance and Katrina Fuller, a freshman at L-FL is a humble young man. Kyland is a member of Student Council, indoor and outdoor track teams, and the cross-country team. Being a Dogger to Kyland means the he is always doing his best. When told he was selected, Kyler said he was surprised, honored and excited. He is a dedicated student, athlete and an active member of the Dogger community.

Kyland is a compassionate young man who seeks to give his best in everything, working hard to be a great role-model for other Doggers. Kyland’s hard work and dedication to his family, teammates, school and himself are excellent examples of the work ethic and spirit this young man believes in and lives by. Mile after mile, he never gives up.
