Lindbergh High celebrates Class of 2019

The 535 graduates of the Lindbergh Class of 2019 celebrated last week at Chaifetz Arena. But the departing seniors, like Carsen Blankenship, above with arms raised, and in front of him from left, Chad Blaylock and Dan Baudendistel, have more to celebrate than just leaving high school.

The seniors earned more than $23 million in scholarships for the nearly 85 percent of them who plan to attend college. And once again, their high school was ranked as one of the greatest high schools in the country.

Students in Lindbergh High School’s 65th graduating class were awarded more than $23 million in scholarships this year, Principal Eric Cochran said during the school’s Class of 2019 graduation ceremony May 28 at Chaifetz Arena.

Of the 535 graduates, 84.7 percent plan to attend college, 2.2 percent plan to enroll in schools of advanced training, 3.4 percent plan to serve in the military, 8.4 percent plan to enter the workforce, and 1.3 percent are undecided.
