Lumpkin County High School’s Grateful Gathering was truly a day full of fun, fellowship, and delicious food! We had 237 people join us over the course of the two hours. We sent an additional 60 to-go plates out the door to various places, and we took all the leftovers to the LC Sheriff’s Office. We had the superintendent, associate superintendent, all four high school administrators, and countless others serving today! What an amazing #TR1BE! Happy Thanksgiving from LCHS!

Lumpkin County School Nutrition Program is collaborating with UNG & 4-H (Lumpkin Cooperative Extension) to grow produce at Dahlonega's Vickery House Gardens to serve our students in school cafeterias. Our LCSS students involved in 4-H work with UNG students and professors at the gardens twice monthly! Please support this initiative to raise additional funds for building materials & supplies to get local heirloom veggies & fruits into our Lumpkin school cafeterias!

It's fitting that Kurt Thomas and Radford Windham spent some time in the Zac Brown Booth today! All three (Thomas, Windham, and Brown) graduated from LCHS and spent some time playing music together back in the 90s. Although it's special enough to have Kurt and Radford in the booth, the real star is that guitar! The oldest Martin guitar still in circulation and being played is this 1846 beauty. Thanks, Kurt, for stopping by Cottrell Recording Studio @ Indian Drive today!
