Lebanon Youth Council Unveils “Tiger Way”
“The Tiger Way” has tremendous meaning within the Lebanon school system. The Tiger Way refers to how students are expected to carry themselves; by being good students, hardworking athletes, and respectful citizens.
A physical representation of the Tiger Way motto was unveiled by members of the Lebanon Youth Council in August. The council is made up of a group of high school students wanting to make a difference in their school and in their community.
Members of the Lebanon Youth Council met and brainstormed ideas for their first project. A project that would be visible, and make a difference for students as well as the general public. Conversations rested on changing the name of Essex Drive to Tiger Way. Essex Drive was selected because it leads to Lebanon High School, it was the street listed on the address of the high school, and only a handful of residents would be affected by the renamed street.
As you can imagine, your Lebanon High School Youth Council took great pride, while taking a hands on approach during the process. Students went door-to-door, getting feedback from residents along the road. Students went before the school board to share their decision, and students went before the Board of Works to request the road be renamed.

The group has already had initial conversations about what they would like their next project to focus on. I am looking forward to hearing the ideas they come up with next.
