I started mid-sophomore year due to some extenuating circumstances. This was back When LHS was just beginning in KC. When I walked in, I felt like I belonged as most all the other students were very friendly and welcoming. The teachers were very caring for each of the students. I was talked into joining the Highlights, a musical class, as a rowdy running the sound equipment. I was slowly convinced by Mr. Towsley that I had some talent in singing as well and yes, I also performed with the group while still operating the sound system, Mr. Lassater, in shop class, brought even more of the best out of me creating leaded glass pictures, forming and welding metal strips into more artwork and reworking an Oak desktop from a desk given to me by my Grandfather (and I still have the desk 30+ years later) and took honors in the class which also lead me to know what part of my calling was in life. Senior your, I was also convinced to play on the soccer team and played every game which allowed me to Letter though I never got the jacket. I thank LHS for making me who I am today and know that they continue to provide a solid education and social environment for everyone.
