Lukas Kowal is a senior with only a few months left in his high school career. He is a talented student in the Audio Video department. The last two years Lukas submitted videos to the DMV contest and since freshman year he has participated in every VideoFest performance.


In addition to Lukas’ extensive contribution to the Audio Video department, he is an excellent student. He is always fully engaged in class and demonstrates the utmost respect for himself, the work and the community. Lukas regularly participates in classroom discussions and volunteers to demonstrate math problems for the class. His academic performance is consistently outstanding. Lukas demonstrates humility in his academic ability and uses his talent to benefit the class.


Randy Nokes, one of ACT’s Math teachers shares, “I have Lukas as a student in Consumer Math and AP Statistics. He stands out among his peers as exceptionally self-motivated and respectful toward the learning process and school community. Lukas is a role model for his peers. He is always willing to help the whole class or individual peers with academic work.”


Lukas is one of ACT’s Tri-Presidents for Student Council. This is the first year in ACT history that our school had three students voted to lead the student community. Lukas enjoys developing ideas for the school. He attends all events and performances to support his peers and often lends a hand in helping develop segments of the shows at ACT.  Lukas is also a member of National Honor Society and is a founding member of the Dungeons and Dragons club.


Lukas is planning to study Film and Television Production as his chosen major in college. He has been accepted to Savannah College of Art and Design and Columbia College in Chicago. Lukas will attend one of those schools once he graduates from ACT.
