I love Labette County! There were so many outstanding opportunities that I had the chance to be involved in, including 6 clubs, 2 national conferences, band, sports events, and volunteering in the community. The teachers are like my friends and they genuinely care about their students and our future. My band director, Mr. Hundley, is currently helping me view my future career option as being a band teacher for secondary schools. The college courses that I have taken have prepared me for college, and I even took some courses at Coffeyville Community College and the level of education that I had from Labette County has really shown me that I am ready for college.

During my four years at LCHS, I enjoyed my time greatly. I met new friends, got even closer with some of my old ones, and that made my time even better. The teachers at LCHS are among the best in the state. They care about all of their students and are willing to help them with anything. I am very proud to be a future graduate of Labette County High School.
It was a great experience. I had learned so much from everyone there. I even had a great jumpstart on college classes!
