Ali Nicewonger, a junior, stated, “My freshman year was hard to adjust to and I wanted to join certain clubs and activities, but I never knew when tryouts were.” Nicewonger wishes she was more involved in the LNE community and she said she would be more involved if clubs/activities were more accessible to join.

27/30 LNE students said they want to be more active in the LNE community and that they would be if clubs/activities were more accessible to join. 90% of the surveyed kids said that having an updated clubs/activities list would help them join these great events provided for them. Lincoln Northeast has clubs and activities lists on their website, but they are never updated or helpful. Students want an updated list to assist them and make involvement easier.

Lincoln Northeast High School is great place to put yourself out there and to become apart of wonderful events like mentioned. Clubs and Activities here exist purely to give kids a better platform to achieve a bright future.
