Students in the Lindbergh High School Class of 2011 were awarded almost $12 million in scholarships, and 90 percent plan to attend college this fall, Superintendent Dr. Jim Simpson said during the school’s graduation ceremony May 26. For the first time in many years, girls wore yellow caps and gowns, while boys donned the traditional green.
LHS seniors – 468 in all – walked across the stage and received their diplomas during an evening ceremony at Chaifetz Area. The proud Flyers will now soar on to promising plans that will further their lives, educations and careers. Ninety percent of them will attend 57 different colleges, while 3 percent will enroll in schools of advanced training, 3 percent will serve in the military, and 4 percent will enter the workforce.
