Lake Highland is strongly committed to inspiring patriotism in every Highlander. We believe that it is critically important to understand and transmit this message from generation to generation.
Americans are incredibly fortunate to live in the freest and most prosperous country in the history of the world, and our many freedoms, individual liberties, and free enterprise system did not happen by accident.
Annual Veterans Day Tribute
One of the most widely celebrated and recognized traditions on our campus is our annual Veterans Day tribute. Welcoming more than 2,000 visitors to campus, 500+ students and faculty members rehearse for months to honor veterans from across Central Florida with a moving program.
The accomplishments of our nation’s veterans are legendary. The results of their collective efforts are unprecedented in the history of the world. Their selfless service, untold sacrifices, years of dedicated hard work, and steadfast commitment to America’s freedom resulted in the world’s best military protecting, sustaining, enriching, and inspiring the world’s greatest nation.
"I thank God that we have been blessed with such brave men and women throughout our history – heroes of every size, shape, background, and circumstance, yet remarkably similar in their commitment, courage, and willingness to sacrifice for freedom."
Alfred G. Harms, Jr.
Vice Admiral U.S. Navy (Ret.)
