At La Lumiere School’s May Academic Awards ceremony, Lieutenant Colonel John Polhamus, Professor of Military Science at the University of Notre Dame, awarded an Army ROTC scholarship to Patrick Lake, the son of John and Mary Lake of La Porte. The scholarship, valued at over $155,000, will be used by Patrick to study Political Science at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Patrick’s brother John, a 2012 La Lumiere graduate, currently attends the University of Notre Dame on an Army ROTC scholarship. Headmaster Michael Kennedy said, “We are very proud of both Patrick and John. The Lake brothers were leaders at La Lumiere School and I am confident they will continue to serve as leaders in college and beyond. I look forward to following their careers for many decades to come.”
