Distinguished Graduate Program

This message is for  all seniors on the Academic Honors Diploma. The online application is now open for those seniors applying to become a Distinguished Graduate. The link to apply is here and also located on the LHS website.

The deadline for applying is Friday, February 12, 2021 at 3:30PM. As a reminder, this program is totally voluntary and up to the student to have tracked their information and apply in February. Since there is no more class rank, which was the criteria for our annual Pillar of the Community program, the top 10 point earners of Distinguished Graduate will participate in Pillar Dinner and recognize their influential educator on Sunday, May 2, 2021.

What is the Distinguished Graduate Program?

The Distinguished Graduate Program is a recognition given to the top 10% (Approximately 30 students) of seniors on the Academic Honors Diploma who score the highest number of points from the rubric on the back. Approximately 10 students will receive the highest recognition of distinguished graduate while the remaining approximately 20 will receive the honor of commended graduate. The purpose is to recognize students who excel in academics, service and leadership, and extra/co-curricular activities. Those seniors achieving distinguished and commended graduate will receive special recognition at graduation. Commended graduates will wear stoles, while distinguished graduates will wear stoles and medals.

Selected students will be informed on or before April 9, 2021. For more information, go to lhs.lcsc.k12.in.us under Explore > For Students > Distinguished Graduate Program.
