Beginning today, Lincoln-Way High School District 210 will be joining many schools nationwide in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Pennies for Patients program. Since 2006, Lincoln-Way students have made significant donations to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society at the end of October. The Pennies for Patients collection will look different this year as we have a link for each school that will be open now through November 23. All donations are appreciated and are tax-deductible. Your support empowers The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to achieve its goal to cure blood cancer and provide support to patients and their families. Lincoln-Way Central: https://pages.lls.org/ltn/chi/wsuburban22/lincolnwaycentral There will be announcements about the Pennies for Program during the second hour but money does not be collected in your classrooms. All classes are encouraged to participate, not just your second-hour class. The video link below provides insight into the impact of the Pennies for Patients' donations to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Feel free to share the video below with your second-hour classes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhZF3_8EIzM Thank you for continuing to make a difference!

Typically, when you ask a student how they spent their summer, they talk about spending time with friends, working, summer school or vacations. Ask Brent Kowalczyk that question and the answer is very impressive! He joined the National Guard! He attended Basic Training for 10 weeks and will devote one weekend a month continuing his training. Brent is mature beyond his years and really cares about his future. He has wanted to serve his country since 7th grade. He speaks of a strong sense of duty, honor and comradery. He is well on his way to fulfilling his goals. He plans on attending an Illinois public college, which will be paid for by being in the Guard, and study psychology and possibly law. He also plans to be in ROTC at the college level which allows him to graduate and enter active duty as an officer. He indicated, “this was the best decision of my life, which changed me physically and mentally”. He also said that he gained life skills that he now applies to his education and personal life in terms of his drive and dedication. We are very proud of your accomplishments thus far, Brent!
