Trey and Lilla Granger take no credit for the person their daughter Lilla Bea’s becoming. They say she’s a “real self-starter,” but Lilla Bea sees them as her cheerleaders.
“They’re very supportive and encourage me to pursue my passions,” says Lilla Bea.
At Montgomery Academy, Lilla Bea has served as an Ambassador, French Club President, Lower School Peer Pal, a member of the Forensics Team, Government Club, H.E.A.R.T Community Service Club, Academy Girls’ Bible Study, and played on the tennis team. She is also a part of First United Methodist Church Youth Leadership team, the Acolyte, a Children’s Church leader, Bible School leader, and a weekly tutor at Family Sunshine Center.
Mr. and Mrs. Granger see their daughter as “the quintessential people-person” that has a way of making everyone feel at ease. They notice that Lilla Bea always has a smile on her face and say that they’ve been blessed to have her as a daughter since day one.
Trey and Lilla have been taught that education and hard work make up the foundation for one’s success in life. They believe parents should “make every day count and make sure that parenting is your priority.”
They also concur that parents should instill in their child trust, confidence and unconditional love in order to equip them with the ability to effectively deal with the curve balls life offers up from time to time.
