On May 31, 321 members of the LOHS Class of 2016 were recognized at the high school's annual Academic Honors Night. 133 received Cum Laude cords (GPA 3.3-3.699), 64 received Magna Cum Laude cords (GPA 3.7-3.899) and 114 received Summa Cum Laude cords (GPA 3.9 or higher). Every student was honored by the Board of Education, which manages the District's Lamp of Learning Program.
During the event, more than $64,000 in local scholarships were awarded to our seniors. In addition, Lake Orion's graduating class is awarded several million dollars in academic and athletic scholarships from individual colleges, universities, technical schools and military academies each year. Students who received such support to further their education after high school were recognized at honors night.
Lake Orion's commencement ceremony for the 533 members of the Class of 2016 is scheduled for the evening of Tuesday, June 7, at DTE Music Theatre in Clarkston.
