To the editor:
The success of any public high school can largely
be measured by the support of its community. Once again the Logan
County community and our extended community of alumni and friends
have shown their support for Lincoln Community High School by
generously supporting this year's senior class.
At a senior awards ceremony at LCHS last Monday [May 21], local
businesses, unions, civic groups, charitable organizations,
foundations, colleges, universities, alumni and other individuals
graciously awarded over $200,000 in scholarship money to seniors in
recognition of academic achievement and personal excellence at LCHS.
These scholarships will enable LCHS graduates to continue with their
educational and career goals. Also, since these scholarships are
awarded annually, they encourage all current LCHS students to pursue
excellence in hopes of being a future recipient.
[to top of second column in this letter]
On behalf of the LCHS board, I want to congratulate our senior
award winners and to thank our community for its overwhelmingly
gracious support. LCHS is what it is today because of its great
students, its supportive parents, its dedicated employees and its
supportive community. LCHS will continue to have a bright future
because of these groups and the ongoing and generous support of
those who finance these scholarships. Our sincere appreciation goes
out to all of you!
