2020 Golden Herald(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – On Friday, Jan. 17, Golden Herald applications will be due to LRHS Golden Herald sponsor and English teacher Candice Delazzer’s in room 541. The Golden Herald Award is presented by Manatee Memorial Hospital in hopes to recognize students for selfless acts throughout their community.

Each candidate must write an essay based on a chosen topic. Topics include art, athletics, business, citizenship, computer and technology, drama, English and literature, foreign language, general scholarship, journalism, mathematics, music, science, social science, speech, and vocational.

Each candidate must be a senior and provide a list of awards won throughout the high school years, and a list of names of recommending teachers with room numbers and telephone extensions.

Candidates must respond to these three statements –

  • How have you used your talent or skill for the betterment of school and/or community? (Be sure to list those accomplishments directly related to your category first.)
  • What honors and award or recognitions have you received? (Be sure to list those achievements specifically related to your category first.)
  • Describe what you consider to be the most important project or activity benefiting your school or community in which you had a part. Define the role you played in the project or activity.

Each nominee will present these essays in front of a judge with the possibility to win up to $1000 in scholarships and a trophy.

“I brought the Golden Herald award opportunity to LRHS because it was a big thing at Southeast where I used to teach. I was a teacher at LRHS when the first senior class was here, so it has been an ongoing event since. I enjoy helping each student prepare by bringing in mock judges and getting the student comfortable to speak in front of a crowd” said Delazzer.

Mustansgs interested in applying can see Delazzer in room 541 to pick up further information.
