Lerstang says, "Valwood taught me not to be afraid to try something new. It gave me the educational foundation and skills to greet the world with confidence and to accept any challenge.  The friends I met at Valwood, when I began in 5th grade, have remained friends to the present day.  Even though paths may take us on different routes, you can always reach out to former Valwood friends and know they well be there for you."
