Lake Catholic was founded in the Fall of 1970 with Principal Simonis at the helm. He was joined by 10 faculty members and 221 students. Within that first year, Lake Catholic students elected student council officers, formed a speech and debate club and founded “Lakeline.” Students joined a variety of teams, including football, basketball, wresting, cross country, track, and cheerleading. Nearly a third of the class in 1970 joined the Little Theater Club.
There must have been such a sense of excitement and hope as more than 200 students built the dynamic culture that still exists today within the halls of Lake Catholic High School.
In honor of the founding year of Lake Catholic, consider becoming a member of the 1970 club. As a member, your recurring monthly gift of $19.70 allows you to support the hundreds of students who proudly walk the same halls – over 50 years later.
