Lindbergh Students Commit to College Level Athletics and Performing Arts

April 27, 2023

Lindbergh High School students committed to athletic teams and performing arts programs during a senior signing ceremony on Thursday, April 27. LHS Athletic Director Scott Luczak and LHS Music Coordinator Linda Huck congratulated the seniors, who will continue their academic, athletic and performance careers in higher education.

“This is one of the most special days for athletics and the fine arts programs,” Luczak said. “This is the culmination of all the events, practices and competitions that the students attend. We are very excited for the families, teachers and coaches who’ve worked with the students for so long to see them get to where they are now. This is a special day for everyone.”

Luczak said all of the Lindbergh athletes signing are great students as well, and applauded them on balancing high academic standards with excellent athletic achievements. Only about 7 percent of all high school athletes go on to play collegiate sports, and only 2 percent earn scholarships. 

Huck also thanked the students for their hard work and dedication, and for sharing their talents with the Lindbergh community. She introduced each of the performing arts students.
