Class of 2015 Prepares for Graduation

The Class of 2015 stands at the threshold of new beginnings and opportunities, looking forward to the new challenges ahead.


This year's Valedictorian is Rachel Drazner. Rachel, who has attended Lakehill since eleventh grade, will attend Rice University in the fall to study biology.

The Salutatorians are Kelly Werther and Haley York. Kelly and Haley are "Lakehill Lifers," having attended Lakehill since Kindergarten. Kelly plans to study journalism and mass communications at University of Kansas. Haley will attend Texas A&M University to study business/marketing.

Members of the Senior Class have just completed their two-week internships as part of their graduation requirements and presented a summary of their work to a faculty committee. They will take their final walk across the Lakehill stage on May 29 at 7:30 p.m. in Lakehill's forty-second Commencement Ceremony.

Lakehill congratulates the Class of 2015 and wishes them continued success. Seniors, in the words of  Tom Brokaw, "You are educated. Your certification is in your degree. You may think of it as the ticket to the good life. Let me ask you to think of an alternative. Think of it as your ticket to change the world."

Once again, 100% of Lakehill graduates will continue on to college. You can read more about all of Lakehill's seniors and where they are headed in the upcoming issue of Milestones.

Awarding Athletes
Teams Celebrate Success at Athletic Banquet

It was a time of celebration for the Athletic Department as Lakehill's Upper School teams wrapped up the year with their annual Awards Banquet on May 21 at the Environmental Science Center.

Sponsored by the PFC, the event allowed each athletic team the opportunity to be recognized and also gave coaches, students, and supporters the perfect opportunity to celebrate the season's successes and build momentum for the coming year. Those athletes maintaining strong academic standards were recognized with honor awards. 


The Fighting Heart Award, selected by the coaches, is given to two student-athletes who lead by example, display pride, and put the team first, embodying the true spirit of a Lakehill athlete. This year's honorees were Kelly Werther and Cole Ellis.


Congratulations and thanks to all the Lakehill athletes and coaches who dedicate their time and talents to these programs. A special thanks to PFC Athletics Chair Michelle Crow and her committee for organizing this event.
