Lizardo Receives Palmer Award at LCHS Fall Banquet
On November 13, The Nick Palmer Award was presented at the Annual Fall Sports Banquet at Lake County High School (LCHS). This year’s recipient was senior Fatima Lizardo who competes in a number of sports, including cross country.
This award is presented annually to an outstanding athlete that has demonstrated excellence in academics, shown leadership in their sport, classroom and community; sportsmanship on and off their respective field of play as well as devotion surrounding their sport.
The award is named after Nick Palmer (see below), a LCHS graduate and football player. Palmer also served in the Marines and gave his life in service to his country.
“As time goes on, those who knew Nick have left the halls of Lake County High School,” explained Rachele Palmer, Nick’s mother, “and new classmates will have the opportunity to know of Nick and his qualities through this award.”
