Meet Laci

Future Diver

Laci, a second grader at Clear Fork Elementary School in Raleigh County, discovered her love of water and interest in diving when her family got a swimming pool. Now she dreams of growing up and becoming a certified diver. Her essay on the topic earned her $500 toward her college education in the SMART529 When I Grow Up essay contest.

“It will take a lot of training, but it would be really fun to go under water and see lots of fish and look at sunken ships,” she said. Laci would love to dive with dolphins and discover new fish.

Laci enjoys school and says her favorite subject is “all of them.” Outside of school she loves to swim, play soccer and sing karaoke. She also enjoys playing with her sister.

Bright futures begin with SMART savings.
