After posting an impressive 2,038 hours of community service during the 2105-16 school year, the Lake City Athletic Department set a goal of 3000 total hours in 2016-17.
Led by a strong core from the Class of 2017, 224 student-athletes and coaches took part in 39 total service projects this school year to meet their goal and accumulate 3,007 hours of community service.
Senior Dyesha Lee led the student-athletes with 71 total hours in 2016-17.
“These service projects have been one of my favorite parts of high school,” said Lee. “From seeing the elementary kids so happy to see us every Friday to the Christmas party at the Boys and Girls Club to the city-wide cleanups, I have enjoyed every minute of paying forward in my community.”
Lake City High School Principal Ned Blake is also pleased with the efforts of the students and athletic department.
“I challenged the student body and faculty when I took over at Lake City High to step up their involvement in the community,” explained Blake. “This senior class and the athletic department leadership have gone above and beyond my vision and represented the very best of LCHS.”
