Senior Spotlight

National Junior Honor Society Highlights Lakehill's Soon-to-be Graduates

Clayton In an effort to reveal the hidden talents, personalities, and accomplishments of Lakehill's most experienced students, the National Junior Honor Society presents:

NJHS Spotlight on Seniors!

This week's senior: Clayton Drazner 

Soon-to-be Lakehill alumnus, Clayton Drazner, will graduate with the highest academic honor as the Valedictorian of the class of 2013. He will attend Rice University in the fall where he will pursue the degree of Computer Science which was his favorite subject at Lakehill.


Clayton's says his favorite classes have been English with Mr. Hagood and Musical Theater. The teacher that inspires him the most is Dr. Brigham. He says her classes are interesting and eye-opening, and he feels very fortunate to have had a teacher like her.


Clayton describes his experience at Lakehill as "busy" because there were so many classes and different things to do. His hobbies include playing the guitar, listening to music, playing video games, and playing tennis. He hopes to continue these hobbies in college. 


Clayton will miss Lakehill, especially the teachers, pep rallies, and his classmates. When asked what advice he would give to incoming freshman regarding high school, his response was to get ready to work hard. He considers his greatest accomplishment at Lakehill to be leading the Debate team to State in Austin and at the Model UN in Minnesota. 


Clayton is a National Merit Finalist and Scholarship winner. He is also one of 20 Texas high school seniors selected for the TASSP All-State Academic Excellence Team. Clayton says that if it wasn't for Lakehill and all of his teachers, he would not have received all of these awards.
