     H   ello, My name is Christy (Ledford) Nordan.
         Many years ago as an adolescent, I lived at The
     Crossnore School. I was the first adolescent sent there
     from a Training School. Although, my experience did
                               not last long, I still remember
                               those days, quite well.
                               Crossnore is an exceptional

                               place for children that are
                               in need of a good, loving
                               environment. Unfortunately,
                               my stay at Crossnore was
                               short. I was full of anger and
                               confusion and continued to
                               runaway due to lack of trust
                               and did so from Crossnore
                               as well as many others but,
                               I have reached a milestone
                               in my life considering the
                               obstacles I have overcome.
     Today, I am a Guardian Ad Litem for Lincoln County,
     in hopes of helping children just as those did for me.
     I wanted to share this story with Crossnore School
     because Crossnore is one of the few places that I
     believe made a difference in my life by treating me
