Words of Wisdom From The Counseling Office

May 8, 2014

"The old man was peering intently at the shelves.  'I'll have to admit that he's a very competent scholar.'  Isn't he just a librarian?' Garion asked, 'somebody who looks after books?' That's where all the rest of scholarship starts, Garion. All the books in the world won't help you if they're just piled up in a heap." 

- David Eddings, King of the Murgos

As the year winds down, LHS students will continue to be challenged by upcoming semester tests.   Open those books, either the traditional textbooks or the ones scanned to your computer.  Come to the Senior Tribute on Tuesday, May 13th, to witness first hand what good grades, creative and honest writing skills, and personal goals and drive can bring to students.

Our school is proud to announce 17 Susan T. Buffett winners for the 2013-14 school year.  We have 15 Kearney Bound scholarships.  We have over 50 scholarships awarded to students to assist them in their future college education.  How does a student begin this process for these awards?  Start by having some pride in your grades.  Class rank and GPA are huge.  Teachers and administration cannot instill this quality, students have to be self-driven. 

LHS has some quality individuals graduating May 18th.  Most of them used their brains to learn, not wasting time on finding an easier way out.  We wish them well and hope they will return to our school to tell us of their adventure.  The educational foundation has been laid.  Like books, you can be content with collecting dust, or they can be used to explore limitless possibilities.

"You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You're on your own.
And you know what you know.
And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go..."
- Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go!
