Spartan Spotlight
Our Spartans are multi-talented, caring members of their community.

Each month the “Spartan Spotlight” will shine on a student who has done something special beyond the walls of his or her school. Whether it be sharing their talents with others, excelling at a non-school related sport, participating in a hobby, or volunteering their time to help out, we want to let everyone know how our Spartans shine.

SPOTLIGHT MOMENT: Curating Buddy Holly memorabilia for the HS production of “Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story”

Lucas has combined his hobby as a collector, with his interest in Buddy Holly, and has acquired quite the collection of Buddy Holly memorabilia, and artifacts from that era in American music history. His collection includes, Holly’s high school yearbook, albums, a replica of Holly’s iconic eye glasses, a music book signed by his mother, and a key similar to the one that would have started the engine of the plane that Holly boarded on the night of his death. Along with the physical items, Lucas has amassed an extensive knowledge of all things related to Buddy Holly’s life. Luke’s collection will be on display during the High School Spartan Theater Co. production of “Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story,” April 27 - 29.
