In an effort to reveal the hidden talents, personalities, and accomplishments of Lakehill's most experienced students, the National Junior Honor Society presents:

NJHS Spotlight on Seniors
This week's senior: Kevin Lantz
Kevin Lantz has been at Lakehill since ninth grade and has enjoyed his four years here. During that time, Kevin has contributed to the athletics program by playing baseball, football, and running track. He is most proud of fighting through many injuries during all four of his football seasons, where he was also a Varsity captain in his senior year.  Kevin has held several leadership positions, including Vice President of the National Honor Society. 

Kevin looks forward to finishing high school with a strong GPA and spending his last summer before college with his friends and family. He plans to attend Indiana University at Bloomington to study Athletic Training and Kinesiology. 

Kevin's favorite musical artists are Childish Gambino and Sam Hunt. His hobbies include playing sports, watching movies, and hanging out with his friends.

The greatest honor Kevin has ever received was getting chosen to give a speech about his grandfather's experience in the Vietnam War at a Veterans Day Ceremony in Southlake.
