Baraga Area Schools (BAS) ninth grader Kayla Lamson is free-r wheeling these days thanks to a class assignment straight from the heart. Kayla, her sisters, BAS fifth-grader Vanessa and L’Anse High School junior Alexis, and their uncle, Richard Schjoth, were injured Feb. 24, 2021 when Schjoth’s pick-up truck slid across the snowy center line on US-41 in Baraga and was struck by an SUV. Schjoth, Vanessa and Alexis were taken to U.P. Health System in Marquette. Kayla was transferred to the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor. The girls’ younger brother, Tyler, was also in the vehicle but was uninjured. To read more, subscribe to the L’Anse Sentinel online, or buy a print copy at our local retailers.
