postheadericon Lansing High School Celebrates Honor Roll Students

school_high120Lansing High School hosted its second annual honor roll recognition evening Wednesday, May 28th.  Students on the LHS honor roll were invited to attend the event, which included a presentation by local entrepreneur Charlie Mulligan and an ice cream social.

Mulligan, founder and CEO of GiveGab, a website that helps individuals find opportunities to volunteer in activities that interest them, spoke on the importance of hard work, cooperation, and determination in achieving success.  Attending students were energized by Mulligan’s talk.

A number of students asked the speaker for advice on their own future entrepreneurial pursuits, and discussion of local opportunities to volunteer continued long after the presentation had concluded.

Of the approximately one hundred students invited to the event, about half attended.  Organizers say they hope that these numbers will continue to grow as the honor roll recognition evening and other, similar events continue to encourage scholarship in the student body.

Angola is a stunning four year old who would be delighted to meet you! Although she knows this is a terrific place if one has to be given up for adoption, she misses the amenities of a home, like the sofas, beds to snooze on, toys, and - most important - people to converse with, play with, and purr to.  Windows looking out on the passing scene would be delightful for Angola - especially if you have birds and perhaps chipmunks living on your property. If she’s won your heart, please visit her today! She would prefer to be your only kitty, but she has such a big heart and personality you won't need any more four-legged friends! If you have other critters at home - dog or cat - you must be prepared to do a very slow introduction with Angola. She is a recent mom and still feeling protective.
