    Teachers and staff recognized on this traveling trophy have been singled out by their peers for their extraordinary effort and drive in making Los Alamitos High School the best possible place for students. 
    The "Drive Award" was started at Los Alamitos High School in September, 2011. The staff recognized with this trophy have been singled out by their peers for their continual effort to make LAHS a great place to work and to learn.  The trophy will be displayed in the room of each winner until it is time to pass it on to another deserving person (the current holder picks the next winner).  At the end of each school year, the names of all the awardees will be engraved onto a base and added to the bottom of the trophy - making the trophy grow in prestige and tradition with each year. 
    Please join us in congratulating the LAHS Drive Award Winners!
