For a decade, Chef Paul Godidek was a fixture in our community. Paul was at LFA early and often stayed late. He always put in the extra effort to be part of the community, decorating the Dining Hall for various holidays, taking on roles in Student Council skits, catering special events, and knowing each and every student at the school by name (and café card number). Paul passed away this past weekend. We grieve his loss and keep his family in our prayers.
