MHS Senior Named to Lake County Suburban Daily Herald Leadership Team

Mundelein High School Senior, Sabrina Lee, has been chosen as one of 10 Lake County high school seniors for the prestigious 2017-2018 Lake County Suburban Daily Herald Leadership Team. The Leadership Team recognizes high school students who excel in volunteerism and community service.

Lee, along with other team members, will be featured in a special edition of the Daily Herald’s Neighbor section on Thursday, Jan. 18. The section will feature profiles of the winning Team members as well as the honorable mentions.

During her high school career at MHS Lee has been involved in Link Crew, Model United Nations, National Honor Society, Student Athlete Leadership Team [SALT], Dance and Lacrosse.

Team members were nominated by their respective high schools for their work with community and school service along with the leadership they have shown in those endeavors. A panel of judges selected the Team from a large number of high school students in Lake County.

“Congratulations on being named to the Daily Herald Leadership Team and thank you for your exceptional commitment to volunteerism,” said Renee Trappe of the Daily Herald.

The Daily Herald's 2017-18 Academic Teams represent the best and brightest our schools have to offer. The honorees include graduating high school seniors who have achieved perfect or near-perfect ACT and SAT scores, who have taken the most rigorous courses their schools have to offer and are making plans to be further challenged in top-ranked colleges and universities across the country.

To make the Academic Team or be an honorable mention, a student must be nominated by his or her high school. Each student supplies his or her grades for seven semesters, test scores, grade-point averages, a list of awards and honors, extracurricular activities and scholarships. Students must write personal essays describing why they have pledged themselves to their studies and what they want to do with their lives. A teacher or counselor must write a letter of recommendation for each nominee that talks about their academic prowess and also about what the teen has done in life besides academics.

But it's not enough to have merely mastered their high school subjects; the teens the Daily Herald recognizes also show themselves to be well-rounded individuals—involved in their school and community, and who have a purpose behind their hard work.
