While cheering on her daughter, Heather, who was competing in skiing at the 2013 Special Olympics World Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, LLES Principal Joanne Comer (third from left) had the opportunity to connect with a former student. Zina Hyun (second from right) is a Korean citizen who attended LLES for a few months last year while staying with extended family members who live in Liberty Lake. Zina's family surprised the Comers by coming to the competition, where they had a good time reminiscing about Zina's time at LLES.
