Devo: Shining Stars of Losers Everywhere

Presented on the intercom devotions on Tuesday, August 17 by Ms. Bohnke:

People love stories about underdogs, stories about individuals who started out at the bottom of the heap but worked through their struggles to reach success. We make movies about these underdogs, we cheer for them when they compete in the Olympics – you have probably heard about Joseph Schooling, the man from Singapore who not only won his nation’s first gold medal ever, but did by beating Michael Phelps.

But you might not have heard of Haru Urara. She is a native of Japan. She is also a horse. She ran her first race in 1998. By 2003 she had achieved 80 consecutive losses without any wins. She was the ultimate underdog. Most horses with such a long losing streak are sent off to be slaughtered, but Haru’s owners weren’t willing to do that. They just kept entering her in more races.

What are senior ads?

Senior Ad ExMany families choose to purchase space in the advertising section of the Luminarian to say something special to their graduate – congratulations, a reminder of a Bible verse or family motto, or best wishes for the adventures ahead.  Ads often include senior photos or baby pictures, and in the 2016 Luminarian ads were even more personalized, featuring student artwork and handwritten messages. For more information about placing a senior recognition ad, see our information packet below or contact yearbook@clhscadets.com.

National Youth Gathering

Very few of our students spend their summer playing video games on their bums. Many traveled down to New Orleans for the National Youth Gathering; others joined their churches on missions trips to locations far and wide. Even more spent a lot of time at CLHS, leading athletic camps, conditioning themselves, or attending summer school.  Here’s a snapshot of some of our students from the National Youth Gathering, and if you have more of your summer photos to add, send them to yearbook@clhscadets.com or upload them to the ReplayIt App!

Why the Change? 2016 Yearbook Distribution

For the first time this August, the Luminarian will have a fall distribution instead of a May delivery.

“But when do we get to sign them?  It’s tradition! Why make the change?”

The primary reason is because you will get a superior yearbook. In prior years, the print deadline for books delivered the last week of school was March 1. That meant anything that occurred in the school year after March 1 – from spring sports, to prom, to graduation – was relegated to the often-misplaced spring supplement.  We still have dozens of old supplements in the yearbook room that never found homes with graduates or other buyers, so if you were a girls tennis player or a cadet marching in the Memorial Day parade, for most yearbook buyers…you never existed.

Welcome to the Lu-Hi Voice!

Resurrecting and chronicling Concordia history

For much of Concordia’s history, the Lu-Hi Voice has been the name of the student-run newspaper publication. In the last few years it has gradually faded from existence, but the CLHS Publications class of 2016-17 has the pleasure of renewing publication as a blog-style website, LuHiVoice.com.

The class also produces the Luminarian, the yearbook of Concordia Lutheran High School. An after-school “pub club” is in the works to broaden the student voices seen on this page.

Progress will be slow in the beginning, but we envision this to be an all-Cadet page, with news about athletics, service, student profiles, student fiction, and reviews. We plan to post student art, video projects, and devotions (for those of you who remember Mrs. Sandy Friedrich’s Proclaimer magazine, we plan to have a section for that to return too!).

If you would like to submit something for publication consideration or are interested in more information about this site or advertising on it, please contact clhspublications@clhscadets.com.

Soli Deo Gloria!
