For outstanding achievement in leadership, service, and activities that serve to improve the school and community, the Lindale High School (LHS) Student Council has been recognized by the Texas Association of Student Councils (TASC). The LHS Student Council has been awarded the following awards for outstanding achievement in 2013–2014: Outstanding Student Council, DASH Award (Drugs, Alcohol, Safety and Health), Energy and Environment Award, Pride and Patriotism Award, Community Service Award, and the Sweepstakes Award. TASC has 1,267 member schools. Fewer than 20 percent of TASC member schools are recognized in one or more areas.
“As the Student Council sponsor, I get to work with some pretty great students every year,” said Sponsor Pam Beck. “However, this year, they have really embraced each other as a group and achieved so much. These kids are so supportive of their peers, and have worked so much to improve our school. It is wonderful to see them receiving validation for all of their efforts. I'm glad they get to be recognized for being a great team. I am so grateful to have such an amazing group of kids who represent Lindale High School so well.”
Student Council members develop proven skills in team building, problem solving, project planning, and decision making. Through their co-curricular activities, student council members serve their communities while strengthening their academic and civic skills.
