The 51rst Annual Miss Lakeside Scholarship Program was held this weekend and it was wonderful! Thank you to directors Whitney Blackmore & Page Cox for the countless hours they put in to make this a special experience for the student participants and a huge hit with the LHS community! Our thanks also go out to all the committee chairs, chaperones, and their volunteer crews that took care of everything including hall monitoring, ticket sales, sound and lighting, and providing food for the participants. It couldn't happen without their leadership and your support.
