Emma Wenckowski, senior Student Council president, welcomes everyone to the assembly during her introduction.

As the school year quickly draws to a close, Student Council hosted the final all-school assembly of the year with musical performances about Calculus and spelling bees, recognition of award winning athletes, artists, musicians, and scholars, and a few heartfelt goodbyes to popular faculty members.

Both Kent Nightlinger, principal, and Bob Knuth, history teacher, will be leaving LZHS at the end of the school year. Knuth will be retiring after thirty five years at the high school, and  Nightlinger will be leaving with the senior class that he began his Lake Zurich career with four years ago.

“We just want to congratulate Mr. Knuth and Mr. Nightlinger because they will be largely missed from our school, and we wanted to thank them for the large impact that they have had during their time here,” Natalie Ullman, senior Student Council officer, said.

Along with being recognized for his achievements, Nightlinger was featured as the guest director for the wind ensemble performance. However, he was not the only teacher that made an appearance.

“I think I liked Matt Pereira’s performance in front of the school the most.” Bridget Tuckey, senior Student Council officer, said. “It was really funny, especially seeing Mr. Ellis hear it next to him and it was really cute when they hugged afterwards.”

While both Ullman and Tuckey enjoyed their final assembly as officers, Ullman says that the end of their time as leaders is bittersweet.

“I think what I’m going to miss most is being such a large part of the community at Lake Zurich High School and getting such a large say in how events go and making decisions on how to run them,” Ullman said. “I’m glad we could make this past school year a success for everyone and I’m so thankful for all of it.”
