The LHS Choir Council offers students the opportunity to gain leadership experience, assist with various needs within the choir/music department, and promote the vocal music department within the school and the community. These student leaders are to help in the day-to-day operations of the choir program. Although there certainly are other strong leaders in choir, a strong leadership hierarchy is important to our success. If a choir member has a complaint about a council member, he/she should contact the choir director who will consider the complaint and outline a course of action. Each of these officers will be elected by a campaign/election process. A student leadership application can be found online or in the choir room.
