Lakers Holiday Party 

On December 23 students from our Skid Row Learning Center were invited by the Lakers to spend the morning with the team and to meet Kobe Bryant. Student Rhe'Aujah is pictured above with Kobe.  She might have been a bit nervous in her photo with Kobe, but look at the smile on her face after their official photo was taken!
