What started as a modest fundraising effort by three Lemont High School students – juniors Hope Conway, Olivia Matthews and Jenna Molaro – ultimately resulted in hundreds of Lemont students actively engaged in a humanitarian effort and tens of thousands of meals being shipped to a country across the world devastated by an earthquake. Their yearlong “Food Fight” fundraiser culminated with more than 65,000 meals being sent to Nepal through the non-profit organization Impact Lives. Read More

Lemont students dominate Joliet Junior College Accounting competition


Lemont had a quartet of students earn individual awards at the 2012 Joliet Junior College Accounting Contest, including (clockwise, from top left) juniors Connor Ganzer, Zach Reitz and Tadas Vildziunas, and sophomore Ann Baillie.

Lemont’s contingent of 20 students dominated the 2012 Joliet Junior College Accounting Contest, which was held on JJC’s campus on April 26. Lemont students took home four of a possible six individual awards, and also helped the school to top-two finishes in both the Accounting I and Accounting II categories. Lemont had ten students compete in each of the contest’s two divisions.

Lemont swept the Accounting I division. Junior Tadas Vildziunas and sophomore Ann Baillie tied for top honors in the individual contest, while junior Connor Ganzer was third. Their performances helped Lemont to a first-place finish in the Accounting I team competition as well.

Junior Zach Reitz posted the highest score of the day, earning a 91 percent to win the Accounting II individual contest. That effort helped Lemont to a runner-up finish in the Accounting II team standings.

The annual Joliet Junior College Accounting Contest not only allows area students to compete against each other, but also provides them the opportunity to earn college credit. Students who score 75 percent or better on the exams at the competition - and who also fulfill the requirements in their Lemont High School accounting courses - earn credits through Joliet Junior College.
