LHS Student of the Month
Senior Bri Hibner might appear to be the typical Student of the Month, as she is a well-liked, positive role model with high academic achievement. She's also a driving force for sustaining the group Students4Students, especially with campaigns around suicide awareness, sexual violence, anti-bullying and substance misuse. AND....! She is a PISTOL (that's Ms. Emily Musty's word for her). She has a spirit that can be both infectious and endearing. Mr. Vince Dude says, "she's a light in my darkness." He adds, "Bri does not even know [the good] her outward presentation does for others, and her internal battles do not keep her from spreading 'the awesome!' She can be seen in the halls encouraging younger students to join in her enthusiasm for her co-curricular activities. She swings by, plops herself down and without shaming, randomly helps students in Science classes. She is quick to offer assistance to adults in the building.... we could go on. Bri is IT!" Congratulations to Brianna!
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.

It is a great experience and an honor to be accepted.
