The two staff members receiving the Spirit of Excellence Awards are Taylor Severino and Kristen Olsen . Taylor and Kristen were nominated by colleagues for demonstrating excellence at Lake Park and within the community, inspiring others to contribute to the school, providing a special service to enhance their department, and demonstrating care, concern and passion to students and colleagues.

The following distinguished alumni will be recognized at the Spirit of Excellence Awards Program for their outstanding career achievements and accomplishments in life:  Dr. Rexanne Struve (Class of 1968), Dr. Rena Szabo (Class of 1987) and Angela Rose (Class of 1996).
