Lenaya LeBlanc, Reporter

Rain and clouds are in the forecast for Lenaya Leblanc, senior, because she wants to stay in Oregon for college. LeBlanc has high hopes for the end of the year and is determined to do her best.

LeBlanc loves science, so it’s only natural that she wants to use her love for science as a nurse. She doesn’t know exactly what college she wants to go to; she only knows she wants to stay in Oregon so she can stay close to her family.

She has a family of four, living in Oregon. They are her mom, dad, sister Kiana, and grandma. She gets along with her sister pretty well. “As she gets older we are getting closer, and I like being there for her,” LeBlanc said. She sees her grandma at least twice a week, and says that they are really close.  LeBlanc is also “best friends with her mom.”

Oregon may have rain and clouds, but for LeBlanc it is a lot more than that. It is where her family lives, and it is her home. And it looks like it is going to be her home for a long time to come.
