NEW LENOX – On June 3, the Lincoln-Way North High School Class of 2014 was led onto the field by Valedictorian Jack Quirk and Salutatorian Calvin Duong as the Lincoln-Way North music department played “Land of Hope and Glory” by Elgar.
Seniors Brandy Benak, David Blakeman, John Larson and Ali Stachowicz sang the National Anthem while Quirk and Senior Class President Alex Littleton addressed the students.
An hour before students filed onto the field, members of the senior class presented the district and Board of Education with a class gift. The gift, which was purchased with proceeds from candy sales and other fundraisers, is a beautiful stained glass window of the North Phoenix mascot placed in the center of the glass window in the student cafeteria.
The gift was unveiled by Senior Class Officers Alex Littleton, president; Elizabeth Pender, vice-president; Emma Cunningham, secretary; and Alyssa Marchal, treasurer, as well as senior class advisor Sarah O’Connell.
