Community shows support with scholarships for graduating seniors

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!

Rick L. Hobler
Board president
LCHS District 404
