Vicki Eastvedt: This school made a big difference in my son's life in a positive way. He began when he was 5 yrs. old and graduated at 22 yrs. He is 40 this April and always looks forward to visiting at graduation time. We will try to get there this June. He lived in So.Cal. when he attended,so he flew all those years. We like the fact that there is very little turnover in staff. It seemed like a big Family. He also got to take advantage of field trips on weekend and join a Boy Scout troop. He loved helping in the Dinning Hall,and learning job skills. He works for McDonalds now and gets a paycheck. He feels like a contributing member of society. As his mother, I think this school can take alot of credit for that. Thankyou, Vicki Eastvedt and Andy South
