Lorena High School receives History Breaking Lone Star Cup in McLennan County | KTA

LORENA, TX (FOX 44) – Students, parents and alumni of Lorena come together tonight to celebrate a big win in the community.

They receive the Lone Star Cup. The first school in McLennan County to receive this honor.

Lorena High School earned the highest score of any other District 3A school in Texas based on performance in Academics, Athletics, and Fine Arts with 96 points.

Texas Farm Bureau Insurance, the corporate sponsor of the award, provided 500 hamburgers and 500 hot dogs for the community tailgate.

Lorena High School Principal Kevin Johnson says all credit goes to the students.

“We have some of the best kids ever, and I tell them all the time, brag about them,” Johnson said. “A lot of it is based on that community and the support that community gives to our students.”

Class of 1990 alumnus John Henry is proud to celebrate today’s achievement with his son being part of the 2021 champion football team.

“I don’t know if it happens too often to other people, but it’s just priceless, it’s pretty awesome,” Henry said.

A homebody staying at Lorena, Henry sees all the change around him and knows that this award is well deserved.

“It has changed a lot, the size too. When I was here we were 2A, now we are three. There have been four times, but it’s just a big community, even the big school itself,” Henry said.

The College Interscholastic League presented the trophy to Lorena High School tonight during their halftime game against Cameron.
