LPA Graduate Dr. Sizemore-Ruiz Comes Full Circle

The nationally known cardiologist, Dr. Tiffany Sizemore-Ruiz, Class of 2003, returned to Lincoln Park Academy to dispense nuggets of wisdom to the eighth-grade graduates of 2017.  She delivered the message that all lessons learned in eighth grade were relevant as she shared anecdotes of the hard-tack lesson from Mr. David Perry’s eighth-grade history class, as well as algebraic strategies taught to her by Ms. Chinn. As a college student, Sizemore-Ruiz passed on the same strategies to her tutor, and she was able to save the life of her Algebra I teacher.  Lastly, she issued a life prescription to the graduates and other members of the audience:  Be kind to one another.
