Jan. 22, 2019 — Lewisville High School has been selected as the Lewisville Area Chamber of Commerce/DATCU Credit Union January School of the Month – the fifth honoree of the 2018-2019 school year.
LHS was chosen because of its constant dedication, hard work and energy given toward student success, as well as successfully implementing Lewisville ISD’s Four Cornerstones. The annual LISD Angel Tree program – led by the LHS Student Council – resulted in more than 7,500 gifts collected for over 1,400 families across the district this holiday season. LHS also helped lead the way for the LISD Be Kind initiative, excelling in the Character Strong program and providing countless Kindness Ambassadors to feeder middle and elementary schools. The Farmers supported the Lewisville Police Department and hosted a successful community blood drive for Carter BloodCare. Those are just some of the countless examples.
“What an amazing honor it is to be named January School of the Month,” LHS Principal Jeffrey Kajs said. “We are thankful for the partnerships we share with the Chamber and the many businesses in the Lewisville area. Their involvement shows their commitment to our students, staff, families and community. Without them, Lewisville High School students would miss out on numerous opportunities.”
Kajs and LHS Student Activities Director Allison Stamey accepted the award Jan. 22 at the Chamber’s partnership luncheon held at Courtyard by Marriott. DATCU Community Relations Coordinator Mary Jacoby and Chamber Board Vice Chair Ann Pape made the presentation.
DATCU will present the entire LHS staff with its award on campus later this month.
