Lindbergh High School earns national honor

Lindbergh High School has been awarded a 2009 National Gold Council of Ex-cellence Award by the National Associa-tion of Student Councils.

Lindbergh, one of 118 high schools na-tionwide to receive the honor, earned this award for its exemplary record of leadership, service and activities that serve to im-prove the school and community.

To be named to the gold-level award, Lind-bergh met a great number of criteria.

Besides such basic requirements as a written constitution, regular meetings and a democratic election process, the high school demonstrated leadership in training for council members, teacher/staff appreciation activities, community service projects and spirit activities.

Throughout the school year, the Student Council plans and serves as host of events to benefit local charities and the community, including collections for the St. Patrick Center and the Halloween “BOO-nanza.”

Lauren Hoppe, a senior and Student Coun-cil vice president, stated, “We are honored because so much hard work and effort has been put forth to be recognized with this award.”

Teacher advisers to the Student Council are Lisa Manson and Brian Tobias.
