If you’ve never witnessed the LHHS Steppers in action, I suggest you slip into the next Wildcat pep rally for a treat. This high-energy, highly disciplined dance group practices hard and plays hard, and they clearly enjoy performing the synchronized dance style. The gym full of students goes wild when they take the floor, and they’re a traditional favorite at the Senior Show each May.

All year Dr. Brenda Prine, Director of the College and Career Center at LHHS, has been working with the senior Steppers, facilitating their college search and encouraging them to dream big. She recently hosted a lunch in their honor, celebrating the fact that each senior had been accepted into the college of her choice.

“I have enjoyed working with this group of young women,” Dr. Prine told me. “It has been a fun journey. They are precious young ladies, and I am proud of their achievements.”

“This is another demonstration of the success stories that are continuing to come from Lake Highlands High School as a result of the programs and resources made available by contributions to Wild for Cats,” said Bill Keffer, chairman of the Wild for Cats academic booster club. “It’s important to keep our momentum going, so I encourage the community to continue to give generously to our organization, currently in the midst of our major fundraising effort.” Donations may be made via the Wild for Cats website or by emailing committee member Julie Jodie.
