IRLS hosted a NALS Judging School taught by Dr. Art Evans and Dr. Brian Bergman in conjunction with our IRLS LilyShow.
Our class of 13 students plus 4 auditing judges was presented with an enormous amount of information.  Our teachers did an
awesome job, but it was the students who made the class. We thank you all for your efforts.

                        Four  student candidates  passed all three sections of the class including the mini-show judging :
                            Dennis Drews, Peggy Nerdahl, Kristi Evans, and Trish Patrick.             Congratulations !
