The unexpected journey of Lauren LeFebvre

Friends & Neighbors: EVERYONE HAS A STORY.

The story of Lauren LeFebvre is a song of hope. She grew up in Cold Bay, Alaska, home to an airbase. Her father worked for the Federal Aviation Administration. Cold Bay, population 100, is an isolated village in the Aleutian Islands. Lauren attended a two-room school with thirty other children in grades one through 12. In Cold Bay, on a stormy day, she would look out her window to check the school lights. If off, it meant she had a snow day; if on, she walked the short distance to school, coming home again for lunch break. Until she reached the eighth grade, that village was all she knew.
