No spring football practice after school until Monday, April 27th. The Red/White game will still be played on Saturday, May 2nd @ 2:30. Pregame action begins at 1:30.
The Wildcat family welcomes home Mr. Lonnie Jordan as our new Head Football Coach and Athletic Coordinator! Coach Jordan was selected from a very long and impressive list of candidates who applied for the position at LHHS.
Jordan served as the Wildcat offensive coordinator from 2007-2010 and returns to LH from Lone Oak HS, where he was Head Football Coach / Athletic Coordinator in 2014 and led the Buffaloes to the playoffs after a 9-2 season in which he was named District 6-3A Coach of the Year. Prior to Lone Oak, Jordan spent four years as Assistant Head Coach / Offensive Coordinator at McKinney High School.
LHHS Principal Frank Miller, who served on the search team that was instrumental in selecting Coach Jordan, had this to say about our new HC/AC; “I am very excited to welcome Lonnie Jordan back to Lake Highlands. He is an ideal match with the profile put together by our community and staff. While his coaching experience and success speaks for itself, the most impressive aspect of his philosophy is a strong commitment to preparing student-athletes for success on and off the field. I invite our students, staff, parents and community to join me in welcoming Lonnie Jordan back to Lake Highlands. Once a Wildcat, Always a Wildcat.”
The Wildcat Club looks forward to hosting a community event in the very near future to introduce Coach Jordan and allow everyone to hear his plans for working with all stakeholders and student athletes to ensure that Lake Highlands fields the best, most well-run sports programs possible. We will offer more details on this event when they become available.
On behalf of all Lake Highlands, we would like to thank Principal Frank Miller, RISD’s Bob Dubey and Steve Quisenberry, and all the community members who assisted in the selection process. This position generated a significant amount of interest within Lake Highlands and the search committee went to great lengths gathering insight from the community as to what we were looking for in the ideal candidate. We believe that the selection of Coach Lonnie Jordan is truly reflective of that process.
Please join us in welcoming Coach Lonnie Jordan and his family back to Lake Highlands!

JOIN THE WILDCAT CLUB TODAY!
Greetings Fans of Lake Highlands School Sports Programs,
Thank you for your continued support of Lake Highlands athletics! The Wildcat Club shares in your enthusiasm and as the 2014-15 school is upon us, we invite you to join us as members of the Wildcat Club.
What is the Wildcat Club? For more than 25 years, the Wildcat Club has existed solely to support the many student athletes and coaches involved in ALL of our Lake Highlands sports. This includes Forest Meadow Junior High, Lake Highlands Junior High, the LH Freshman Center and all 17 sports at Lake Highlands High School.
Why do we need the Wildcat Club? The District provides a base level of funding for our sports programs, and that’s good. But in Lake Highlands, we have always been about GREAT. In short, the Wildcat Club helps fill the void between good and great. Last year alone, the Wildcat Club distributed more than $80,000 to fund items such as uniforms, equipment, team apparel, technology, training aids, coaching tools, and facility enhancements that help make Lake Highlands GREAT. These are the items that our kids and coaches would have otherwise done without. As District cuts continue and costs rise, this mission – and your support – is more crucial than ever.
How can I help? That’s the easy part. Join the Wildcat Club today! Our support of GREATNESS is only made possible by the generosity of our members and sponsors. We offer a variety of membership levels starting at $25, and contributions to the Wildcat Club are tax deductible. If your employer offers an Employee Matching Program for charitable contributions, please include your matching form also!
What do I get? In addition to the highly coveted Wildcat Club 2014-15 decals to display on your vehicle, you will receive special recognition in the fabulous Lake Highlands All Sports Program – a 140 page treasure filled with our students, athletes, coaches and organizations that make Lake Highlands High School the cornerstone of our community. And the sooner you join, the more often your name will appear in the 8 editions!
