At Friday night’s choir concert, PTA president Donna Kent presented choir director Michael O’Hern with the Extended Service Award. He could not attend Tuesday’s award ceremony, so all of LH kept the secret until the concert. In nominating O’Hern, LHHS math teacher Beverly York said he fosters a special connection between the student performers and the audience. He makes every performance special, she said, from the showstoppers to the solos to the quiet candlelit carols.
