LASE’s Herald the Holidays fashion show featured faculty, donors and family this year, but one model shone brightest of all. Rachel Schmieder is a LASE 8th grade student attending Salem Lutheran School in Affton. Her parents celebrated a family of four sons and then along came Rachel. Needless to say she is very special to her entire family! Rachel works hard at school and appreciates an opportunity to share her faith in Jesus with others.

She had all six godmothers attending to cheer her on at her Herald the Holidays’ modeling debut. Her biggest worry that day was walking the runway in her three inch heels. Rachel shared her great looks as a model at the event, but her compassion, ethics and hard work in the LASE classroom make her shine bright at Salem Lutheran School.

Great job, Rachel!
