Joni Thompson was cleaning out her daughter Mardie’s room recently and she happened upon a poetry book Mardi had done for a high school English class. It was all about Leakey and Laity Lodge.

Mardi attended Laity Lodge for 10 years. She is now 27.

For those of you who understand English terms, this is called a 6-room poem.

Being the awesome gal she is, Joni sent us her daughter’s poem along with a  picture of her (w/her dad) as a camper and one of her today. Joni says this is “…a great perspective of a young HS sophomore, last year as a camper, looking forward to work crew the following year.”
