Van Lith shared her thanks to Louisville and fans of the program on her social media.

“It’s been an honor over the last three years to have had the opportunity to pour my passion and heart into Louisville,” she wrote on Instagram. “This city has impacted my life in so many ways and helped shape me into the person I am today. The Louisville community has given to me selflessly. I will never forget your unwavering support. I look back at my time in Louisville with nothing but joy and gratitude...This community will always be a part of my family and I’m forever grateful for my time here.”
