New York Times best-selling author Laura Schroff visited Sequoyah HS Tuesday, speaking to students and reinforcing the message from her book "An Invisible Thread," which is used in literature classes.

"An Invisible Thread" is a story that chronicles the lifelong friendship between a busy sales executive (Schroff) and a disadvantaged young boy, and how both of their lives were changed by what began as one small gesture of kindness. Schroff related a message of kindness and outreach to others during her two 45-minute presentations to Sequoyah students. She also took questions afterward and stayed to pose for photos and give autographs.

Sequoyah HS English teacher Kristy Lingerfelt began corresponding with Schroff on social media and invited her to the school, and she was delighted when the author accepted the invitation. The Sequoyah Beta Club made a financial donation to Schroff's primary nonprofit, No Kid Hungry, at the close of the presentation.
