Happy Birthday Lacey Ross!

Name: Lacey Ross
Student’s Name: Philip Ross
Student’s Graduation Year: 2015
Your Birthday: October 13

 I was born and raised in South Jordan and West Jordan, Utah.  I first met my husband when I was three years old and we lived in the same neighborhood.  I wrote him a get-well card when he was in the hospital for pneumonia, and when he turned five, I went to his pirate birthday party.  And then I moved away. I met him a second time while we were both attending BYU, but we didn't figure out our previous connection until after we were engaged. Phil and I were married two years ago and had our first son, Gabe, earlier this year. I studied Linguistics at BYU, and hope to someday get my graduate degree in Spanish Literature.  I love languages and learning about other cultures.  National Geographic was my bible growing up.  I also enjoy tennis and piano.  We are loving Kirksville so far and are excited for the next two years (at least) ahead!

1.  My first crush was a Chinese foreign exchange student who could wiggle his ears.

2.  I once sat next to Denzel Washington on a flight from Phoenix to San Diego.

3.  I will have a brand new baby brother this Christmas.

Happy Birthday Michelle Lewis!

Name: Michelle Lewis
Student’s Name: Ian
Student’s Graduation Year: 2013
Your Birthday: Oct. 6, 1980

I grew up in Springville, Utah and graduated college with a degree in Radiology.  Ian and I have been married for 7+ mostly blissful years.  I am a stay-at-home mom with 3 kids:  Nathan (5), Ella (4) and Jordan (8 weeks).  I love to homeschool my kids, hike, bike, cook non-conventional meals, walk, read, write, scrapbook, go to new fun places, and talk (a lot ;).  We are currently living in Utah doing rotations and miss our Kirksville friends a lot!  

Two truths and a lie:
1 I was seen as a hippie and was President of the Save-A-Tree club in high school.
2 I once hitchhiked to California and back when I was 18 years old.
3 I got my first speeding ticket on my 14th birthday.
