Celebrity guest, Lydia Leik, wrote later "I saw some great friends, students, teachers, and administrators. As you may suspect, my biggest thrill was reconnecting with so many of the amazing students I met in 32 years at YSSD. I am truly proud to have known and had the opportunity to spend time with these students during their formative years."
