Lake Highlands Women’s League members arrived at Lake Highlands High School Tuesday to surprise recipients of their annual college scholarships. When seniors were called out of class and found LHWL committee members waiting, the jig was up – students knew they’d won.
“This scholarship will be so helpful for my parents,” said Madison Wachel, who will enroll at Baylor University next year. “It will relieve some of the stress for them. I feel proud of the work I’ve done in high school, and now I feel like it’s paying off.”

Lake Highlands Women’s League members visited a variety of neighborhood charities and schools Monday, delivering donations and spreading good wishes. The grants were proceeds from their annual Holiday in the Highlands home tour, which raised a record-setting $213,195. Almost $95,000 was given to community agencies and LH-area schools, and the remainder will be used for college scholarships for LHHS graduates.
