Create additional collaborative learning centers for the students of LHHS;

Provide students with PSAT, SAT and ACT test preparation and online study aids;

Sponsor professional development for LHHS faculty; and

Provide funds for teacher and departmental "wish lists."

If your company provides a company match, please email us at wildforcatslhhs@yahoo.com.  All donors will receive a “Wild for Cats” yard sign and will be recognized at various academic ceremonies, on our website, and in the All-Sports program. Donors contributing $500 or more will be invited to join us for a celebration on the stadium patio during a LHHS home football game next Fall.
