Lakeside Lutheran High School announced its Academic Top Ten from the Class of 2019.
These individuals cumulatively earned 292.3 high school credits, an average slightly above 29.2 credits per person. 26 credits are needed for graduation from Lakeside.
Through seven semesters, the Top Ten has a mean grade point average of 3.968 and their cumulative grade point averages range from 3.898 to 4.000—102/1000ths of a grade point. In one case, the difference in grade point between four of the Top Ten was 21/1000th of a point. Three of these students earned straight As, not a single A-, for semester grades, and one had just one A- through seven semesters.
Lucas Schneider, son of Troy and Kris, Waterloo, is among the top 10 students. He plans to attend the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse to study accounting and business management. “I hope to get a good job as a financial advisor after I double major,” Schneider said.
A member at St. Paul, Lake Mills, he serves as an usher. He participated on the varsity math team for three years, placing both individually and as a team for Madison area and conference math meets, and is a founding member of the STEM Club.
He sings in the A Cappella Choir, is part of National Honor Society, served as the editor-in-chief of the newspaper, and completed a youth apprenticeship with AKT Businesses Services in Lake Mills.
About high school, he said, “It was a great time for personal and social growth. I met my best friends who I plan to keep for the rest of my life. I also think that Lakeside prepared me well to succeed in my future.”
