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.

Pet of the Week

Meet Sophie! This one-eyed beauty has come so far since her arrival at the shelter. She came in with a ruptured eye, injured paw, and was very scared. After some TLC from our medical team, Sophie started to feel better and with that, started showing staff her sweet, affectionate side. We're confident that with patient owners, Sophie will blossom in her new home. She seems to get along fine with other calm cats here at the shelter and should do well in a home too. Give this special girl the home she deserves - she'll be forever grateful!
