She spends her time discovering new music, strolling about Cape Girardeau’s antique shops, and gardening. You can see her perform with the Jazz ensembles at Southeast’s River Campus. Lindsey’s dream career is to be a voice actress. As she awaits her big break, she hopes to retain jobs in on-air hosting, DJ-ing, and performing as a young adult. Or for the rest of her life.

Superintendent Dr. Neil Glass says they expect the program to make a huge difference in the classroom.
