Lighthouse Christian School will be holding its annual Legacy of Leaders event on March 6, 2020. The event will formally celebrate and honor those among us who have made a lasting impact from the Nashville Flood of 2010. The 3rd Annual Legacy of Leaders Awards Banquet will be held at the Boone Center on the campus of Trevecca University in Nashville. This year's event not only included favorite features from previous years, but will feature complimentary valet parking, a Silent Auction, new award categories, a buffet dinner, and more.  

Rick Olzsweski

The Master of Ceremonies for the evening will be Rick Olzsweski. Rick was a crucial supporter during the flood and has been a great friend and supporter of Lighthouse Christian School ever since.
