GRADUATING SENIORS

Abigail Heinrich

Abigail joined Lakeland 14 years ago as a Prelude student. She will be attending Bob Jones University to study Nursing, with plans to earn a Doctorate of Nursing Practice and become a nurse practitioner. She will be bringing her viola to college with her and playing with the University Symphony. Playing viola for so many years has taught her to be patient and endure hardships. She hopes students in Lakeland will continue to “enjoy rehearsals and learn from their conductors and teachers.”
