Class of 2016 celebrates their accomplishments

This evening, Tuesday, May 17, many members of the class of 2016 and their families gathered in the theatre to recognize their many achievements over the past four years as they say goodbye to their time at Littleton High School.

“I just thought that it was cool to see it all come to an end, that we’re getting acknowledged for our hard work and that we’re moving on from here,” said award winner Ryan Prazak.

The seniors took a journey back to their first days of freshman orientation and reflected on their accomplishments: academic, athletic, extracurricular and more while their parents were teary eyed and camera ready in the back.

“It was really fun to see everyone’s accomplishments,” said salutatorian Annika Cobb.

Every department awarded recognition to outstanding leaders in their area and many students received awards from the United States Military, awards from administration as well as various scholarships from alumni.

Students received their sashes and cords representing their scholastic programs, honors, high honors and highest honors in academic achievement that they will fashion during graduation this Friday.

Hall of Fame nominees this year were seniors Magda van Leeuwen, Jenae Stutzman, Caroline Kern-Allely and Mark Young. All nominees represented true LHS spirit and passion through their four years as lions. At the end of the night, senior Magda van Leeuwen was awarded Hall of Fame for the class of 2016 and will join the many alumni on the wall.

“Being the Hall of Fame winner means that I have been able to leave as big of an impact on LHS as it has made on me. It also means that I was nominated with three other kids who I really look up to and who I hope know how lucky I am to be in their company,” said winner Magda van Leeuwen.

The class of 2016 made the decisions hard for those giving out awards and have left their legacy at LHS as they continue their journeys.
