Lufkin High School Students Get Big Scholarship Money

Graduating seniors at Lufkin High School received $114,000 in scholarships from the Alumni Association Monday night at a ceremony at Tom Jack Lucas Auditorium. Big bucks! The LHS Alumni Association said that's the highest dollar amount ever for them.

Contributions by other donors topped $3.1 million, and added up to hundreds of scholarships for 180 students. All that studying DID pay off. I know I thought all the hard work might never end, and then suddenly it did and then I wondered where all the time had gone. Scholarships are a nice way to ease the transition to college. They're a pat on the back, and provide a financial boost in the fall.

We've highlighted some of the local winners here:

Farmer’s Market Open For Business In Nacogdoches

I'm always looking for local honey, since I've heard it's good at helping with local allergies. Getting too scientific about it might make my head explode, but I've heard ingesting what the bees produce is supposed to help fight off seasonal allergies. I'm giving the kids a teaspoon a day and they don't have many sniffles.

With the Farmer's Market is open in Nac, you can not only get local honey, but just about anything else homegrown too.

She Did It – 13 Years of Perfect Attendance

A few weeks ago we brought you the story of Loren Huffstetler, who hadn't missed a day of school her entire life and was on her way to a pretty amazing attendance streak that stretched from kindergarten and elementary school, to middle school and junior high, then high school. Well, the school year has ended now for Loren at the Hudson ISD, and she did it. Perfect attendance feat accomplished.

That's thirteen years of not missing a day. She's never taken a sick day or faked the flu to get a day off, so she doesn't know what it means to make up work or ask a classmate to borrow notes. Pretty impressive!

What's the secret?

Dating Gets High Tech

How did your prom date ask you to the big dance? I remember my classmate Shane sort of nonchalantly turning around at the end of history class and saying, “So ya wanna go to the prom with me?” I said sure, he said “K,” and turned around again, picked up his books and left the room. We had a lovely time.

Some asks are more memorable than others.

How are most students asked to the prom now? You might guess technology plays a part.
