The 10th anniversary of Columbia's Good Shepherd Lutheran School was celebrated March 17 with a gala dinner and auction event. More than $30,000 was raised to support the school's financial operations. The school, which is affiliated with Trinity Lutheran Church, had 87 students this school year.

Betty Buchheit is a Cornerstone Committee member for Good Shepherd Lutheran School, and she shared this story with the Missourian. The photos were taken by Kellie Kotraba, a Missourian editor who is also an active member of Trinity Lutheran Church, which is connected to the school.
