James McKay Award

On behalf of the members and directors of the Lakes Eagles Booster Club, we wish to acknowledge all of our wonderful teachers and staff. We are grateful for all the extra efforts that are evident throughout our school. Thank you all for everything you do to make Lakes Community High School a wonderful place for our children to learn!

The James McKay Award was established in 2010 to honor Principal Jim McKay for his outstanding contributions to the growth, development, and advancement of Lakes Community High School. This award is presented annually to a member of the high school staff whose efforts have further enhanced that vision.

Congratulations to this year’s McKay Award nominees: William Barbanera, Abra Chusid, Mike Gedville, Elliott Hile, James Kelly, Lauren Olson, Jessica Phillips, Nicole Repa, and Travis Shepherd. And special congratulations to our 2018 award recipient: Christopher Blevins.
