Ms. Laurie L Folsom
Laurie L. Folsom advises the student publications and teaches graphic design at Lawrence Free State HS. While she intended to teach biology after graduating Emporia State (and maybe advise yearbook as an extracurricular), life had other plans. She fell back into high school journalism, but stayed because there was always a just "a couple of things" she could do better the next year. Helping students become independent leaders is one of the most rewarding "jobs" she can imagine even though it can be messy at times. This is her year 21 of her journalism advising career.
