Booster Club honors Matt Kastor

Matt Kastor, Fine Arts Department Chair (pictured right), received the Lakes Eagles Booster Club’s Jim McKay Award during a ceremony on May 3. The award was established in 2010 to honor then-Principal Jim McKay for his outstanding efforts to advance Lakes Community High School. Kastor’s nominator writes, “I feel that he has staffed his department very well and is always very friendly with the students and the parents. I feel that he really puts his whole heart into his job. We are lucky to have had him from the start of the school, and I feel that he has grown for the school, and with the school. His dedication and devotion should be recognized.”

Other staff nominees included (from left) Athletic Director Kurt Rowells, fine arts teachers Ariel Mozes and Brent Johnston, math teacher Travis Shepherd, and CTE teacher Jenny Harrington. Kastor’s name will be displayed on a perpetual plaque along with past recipients of the award.
