• Strikers

    Hello!   My name is Lucy Holland and I teach 6th grade pre-algebra on the Strikers' team.  I was educated in Augusta County and graduated from Wilson Memorial High School.  I received my B.S. from Radford University.  After a long stint in the mortgage industry I returned to school and earned my teaching license.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at lholland@augusta.k12.va.us.  I am looking forward to journeying through six grade pre-algebra with your child!
