I am thankful to be part of the team. The students and faculty at West Lincoln High School make my job very rewarding. The kids are so kind to one another, and it is a reflection of the type of parents we have in the West Lincoln community.”

Clary also cited the year ahead.

“As we move into 2020, I would like to see our school continue to focus on improving academic rigor and help all of our students reach their highest potentials,” he said, adding of LCS Supt.
