Lone Peak High School has had a tradition of having
a "Freedom Week" since the school opened in 1998!
I went to the assembly and the "Freedom Halls" in February,
and thought that it couldn't be topped.
This school year, Freedom Week was held the
week of Veteran's Day.
The four students who attended the
Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge
were all were on the planning committee.

family was given a plaque. He has been inducted into the
Lone Peak Hall of Fame.

only preparing to be a principal.)
He is an assistant principal at Lone Peak.
Several halls are decorated by students.
