LHS Academic Pep Rally

May 7, 2014

On Wednesday, May 7, Lexington High School held its Spring Semester Academic Pep Rally.  There were eight different categories for student recognition during the event.  Thirty-five students were recognized for having perfect attendance during the spring semester.  One hundred and sixty-nine students were recognized for having all A's and/or B's for the semester and 419 students participated in an extracurricular activity, student group, or fine arts program.  Eighteen students were recognized as Triple Threat students, this means they had perfect attendance, had all A's and/or B's and participated in a school sponsored activity during the semester.  Finally, five students were recognized as having Perfect A's, this means that at no point during the semester did these students have anything but an A on their weekly grade checks.  The pep rally also had performances by the cheerleaders and the Yo-Yo Club.  The students were also entertained by the popular Student-Body Family Feud gameshow.  Students were also able to listen to Mario Garcia, a former Lexington High School graduate, talk about what LHS meant to him, his experiences in college and how he is doing now.  Finally, the Lexington Foundation, represented by Jackie Berke, and Principal Mr. Hoehner awarded a number of lucky students an Apple laptop computer as they were winners of the Destination:Graduation competition for having the highest percentage of students graduating in their team.
