The Junior World Affairs Council is completing its first year on the Lake Highlands High School campus, but already the student group is earning honors. The organization was named Most Active JWAC chapter in Dallas-Fort Worth at a year-end celebration Wednesday night.

LHHS placed first out of 75 area high schools after welcoming speakers on topics such as the legacy of the Holocaust, global sustainability, human rights and migrants and refugees. In December, the group hosted a shoe drive benefiting vulnerable children at the Buckner Center for Humanitarian Aid and encouraged online donations to the Roma Foundation, which provides rain boots for needy children all over the world.

Congratulations, LHHS JWAC!
