Character Counts & Youth of the Month

Each month of the school year, the Exchange Club of Lake Highlands recognizes two boys and two girls from Lake Highlands High School who exemplify outstanding character, service or academic achievement.

Character Counts

The Character Counts awards are given monthly to young men and women at LHHS, as well as their parents and mentoring teachers, who display strong character traits as a vital part of their daily routine, whether at school or in the community.

They are nominated by the faculty and staff at the High School and are students who serve as peer role models, positively participate in school or community service and extracurricular activities, serve as student leaders, and are reliable and trustworthy.


Youth of the Month

We recognize Lake Highlands graduating seniors, along with their parents and mentoring teachers, who have excelled in academics, leadership, and school and community service.

These are students in the top 20% of their class (and often much higher)  who participate in student government, school publications, music, theater, athletics, or other school-sponsored activities.

These students also typically have received special recognition or awards by other educational, community, state, or national organizations for demonstrating excellence in academics, leadership, participation, and community service.
