DECEMBER
JANE TANGEN 

Jane is a member of the National Honor Society and has designed her own path through high school. While succeeding in some of LHS's most rigorous classes, she has also taken three online classes and is currently enrolled in her fourth Dartmouth computer science class. Jane is president and co-founder of the Nerd Herd and is proud to be considered a young woman who excels in math and science. She is a role model for others, and while she might be considered by some to be quiet, she is remarkably thoughtful and kind. Congratulations, Jane!


Students are nominated for their genuine interest in learning, respect for fellow students and faculty, contributions to the school community, and/or overcoming adversity.  Students are first nominated and then voted on by faculty & staff.

2015 New Hampshire All-State Festival!! 
     Rachel Billings
          Will Merchant
               Nick Ogrinc
                    Jane Tangen

The All-State Festival is for the most outstanding music students in the state. Auditions are extremely competitive and selection to this festival is one of the highest honors a music student can achieve. 

Two of these students had particularly tremendous performances in their auditions: Rachel Billings earned the highest score in the state on bassoon and Will Merchant earned the 3rd highest score in the state on trumpet. These two students have been selected for the NH Chamber Festival, an elite festival that will allow them to perform in a woodwind quintet and brass choir, respectively.
