Lansing’s got talent

June 16, 2011

I am just amazed at the number of talented kids we have in our little town of Lansing. Congratulations to all the seniors who are off in different directions to make their way in the world of opportunities. We wish them the best of luck and hope that all goes well and pray that they make the right decisions in life. I’ll bet a good number of them will do great things to put Lansing on the map. How I wish I knew the names and accomplishments of the Lansing graduates who did special things. I know the list would go on and on.

I know that this year’s class will do great things too. We want to say “Yea Lansing” to all the kids that were so involved and excelled in all of the sports programs as well as the academic programs. “Way to Go.” They brought home medals and trophies to be added to the already-full cases in the LHS hallway.

This brings me to the Lansing Alumni Association. How many of you have looked at their new website, LansingAlumni.com? Whoever put that together did a fantastic job as there is so much to look at. I spent much time just looking at the pictures of past class reunion dinner-dances, the homecoming parades and the golf tournaments. There is information about the upcoming all-school reunion that will be on July 23, along with the individual special year reunions that are in the planning stages.

We also found on Facebook a whole lot of things about Lansing on a page called Get Lansing Kansas. Our museum director, Laura Phillippi has put so much history in there to look at, even pictures that you can help put names to. There is a 1915 class picture in there that includes Sally Zoll, my third- and fourth-grade teacher. There were 11 in that graduating class and this year there were 196. My how we have grown!
