Students impacted by changes

Spacing out within the limits

After hearing a lot about the site, particularly the dangers, I decided to look into it myself. I quickly, quickly became addicted.
The number of people, the number of networking possibilities are endless.
I found all kinds of people on there, from kids that I used to babysit to fellow Rams that walked the hallowed halls of Wilkinson County Christian Academy with me when I was just a teenybopper.
