Tradition. Pride. Excellence. 

These words describe the pillars of Lee’s Summit High School that all students, teachers and coaches hold dear and aspire to. Last month, student athletes from the Lee’s Summit High School football team participated in service projects around our community. In doing so, they established a tradition of service, showed pride in their community and team, and demonstrated excellence of character and selflessness. This year’s team motto is: “Give Not Get.”

The freshman football squad met at the LSHS campus on a Saturday morning where they proceeded to pick up trash, organize storage sheds, trim branches, and weedeat. In addition to their efforts outside, they stepped indoors and helped teachers move furniture and boxes into their classrooms to prepare for the first day of school. They also assisted the LSHS Athletic Booster set up the concession stand for the fall season. 

While the freshman team was making a difference in Lee’s Summit, the JV and Varsity teams traveled to the Harvester’s Warehouse in Kansas City, MO. In assembly line fashion, the young men loaded more than 400 boxes of food to be sent out to help feed senior citizens in the KC Metro area and across the Midwest.

More than 60 players, eight coaches and the LSHS Activities Director Tracy Bertoncin, participated in the day of service. Be on the lookout for Lee’s Summit High School Athletics to continue making a difference through serving others. The Boy’s and Girl’s Track and Field programs have plans in the winter and spring to lend a helping hand as well. 

Go Tigers!!
