Senior Questions and Answers

Advice, stories and more from LPS Seniors

Each year we ask Seniors in our high schools to tell us their stories through our Q&A Feature.

Lincoln Public Schools wants to showcase the variety of students who are successful, the variety of ways in which they are successful, and how their education has positioned them for the future.

Who can appear here?

Any senior on track to graduate can participate.

We have started reaching out directly to National Merit Finalists, and high school counselors will do the same with students they feel would be interested in sharing their story and advice.

Just fill out the Senior Q&A, and send a high-quality photo (like a senior photo, for example) to Zachary Baehr at zbaehr@lps.org (a member of our LPS Communications team).

Where else is this content used?

LPS Communications will share these stories here and on social media accounts (Twitter and Facebook), in our staff email, on school social media platforms, and elsewhere within LPS. Elementary, middle and high schools may request the content to post directly onto their website, if they choose.
