LHS student selected for AL Senate program

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERALinden High School senior Keandra Lewis, like all high school seniors in the spring, is counting the days until one of the most significant milestones in her life: graduation day. For Lewis, May 17th marks the day that she will accept the high school honors diploma that she has worked so hard to earn in a graduation ceremony for which she will deliver the valedictory address. However, Lewis’ attention to the target date of May 17 has been momentarily distracted by the

intervening dates of April 30 through May 2, the dates that mark her service to the Alabama State Senate as a Senate Page.

“I’m very excited about this opportunity to see the State Legislature at work and to be a small part of serving the legislators in their work. It is definitely a once in a lifetime honor that I’ll never forget,” Lewis said.

According to LHS Principal Dr. Timothy Thurman, “I have personally never known a student — neither while I was a student myself nor since I’ve been a teacher and administrator — who had the honor of serving as a page at the state or national level, and I could not be more proud of Miss Lewis. She is obviously an outstanding student since she is valedictorian of her class, and she exhibits exemplary citizenship and a mature understanding of civic responsibility. She is extremely deserving of this opportunity.”
