Independence Academy (IA) students play a key role in helping the Lincoln Children’s Zoo prepare for the annual Zoo Lights celebration powered by Lincoln Electric System. Teacher Megan Britton works with students to hone life skills, fine motor skills and constructive thinking. During this ‘Seat Beside You’ video production by LPS Library Services, watch as IA student Tommy Juarez Alvarez shares his passion for kindness while showcasing his work to his family.

“The Seat Beside You” is a video-series produced by LPS Library Services with the premise that behind every student at LPS, there’s a story…there’s a whole world. With a better understanding of the person in the seat beside you, the stronger our schools and community become.

Do you have a story from LPS you want to share? We want to hear from you!
