Lehi High School was officially created in 1908, meeting first in the old Central School (then located near 500 North and Center Street), then in the first exclusive high school at 200 North Center Street (today’s Public Safety Building location) and then on 500 East between Main Street and 300 North where it is today. Thousands of outstanding students have since attended this wonderful school and advanced their education. Many Lehi graduates have moved on to great success in small business, construction trades, education, science, law, medicine, entrepreneurship, and even professional sports. Although the sleepy little town Lehi was throughout the 1900s has given way to a fast-growing metropolitan area, there remains a connection that binds all these students together; a connection of sentiment, experiences, friends, associations, and accomplishments at Lehi High School.
Recently a group of LHS graduates, under the leadership of the current principal, Doug Webb, have started the process of forming the Lehi High School Alumni Association. Comprised of both alumni and a few current student leaders, the Association’s overall goal is to enhance the educational experience of all LHS students by connecting alumni with current students at LHS. The first step in reaching this goal has been to establish the Lehi High School Alumni Association Scholarship. This scholarship is designed to award a scholarship to a graduating senior who meets the following criteria:
- A demonstration of financial need – ideally the successful applicant will not likely be able to attend an institution of higher learning without receiving this award.
- A record of participation in school and community activities that demonstrates a commitment to contribute to Lehi High School and the Lehi community.
- A good, not necessarily outstanding, academic record sufficient to show the ability to be successful in post-high school education and an ACT score.
- Having attended Lehi High School for at least 2 years, one of which must be as a senior.
The Association wants to involve as many alumni as possible and is looking for any former LHS students willing to volunteer to serve on the Board of Directors. Time commitment is minimal, consisting mainly of a one-hour meeting once every quarter. If you have an interest in helping advance the educational experience for LHS students, please send your name and contact information to Doug Webb at firstname.lastname@example.org.
