Update: Mentors have come forward to make this a successful year so far. Thank you!
We are excited to announce that we will be able to have STRIVE again this year, though with a few changes due to Covid-19.  Along with this announcement is an ask for mentors for this school year.  Below are some of the requirements for this year’s program along with some key dates.
  • LHS will be sending out a letter shortly to the students who are eligible to be part of the STRIVE program this year.
  • Steve Forsberg, Dan Sleeman and Patti Klevorn will meet with the students on Thursday, September 10th to explain the STRIVE program to the eligible students.
  • On Wednesday, September 16th Steve, Dan and Patti will host a 1 hour STRIVE mentor training using Google Meet.
  • At 8 AM Friday, September 18th mentors will meet with their STRIVE student at LHS.  For those mentors who are unable to attend in person, Google Meet will also be available.
  • If you are interested in mentoring, you will have to fill out an iChat form and turn it in to the Central Business Office by 9/4 for the annual background check.

  • We are planning to have an end-of-year banquet/awards celebration with the STRIVE students, their family and mentors.
  • We will have Google Meet meetings during the year to recognize students and to bring in area “experts” to talk about subjects of interest to the students, e.g., area banker talking about personal finances, someone from WSCC talking about college options, someone from the Lakeshore Resource Network talking about local resources.
