As the newest face of LHS security, Mr. Pat Kelly takes his job very seriously.
“I take pride in what I do and do it to the best of my ability,” Mr. Kelly said. Mr. Kelly began working at LHS three years ago as a lunch room and study hall monitor and this year, he was officially added on to the security and safety team.
Before Mr. Kelly worked at the school, he worked at the Mercantile Exchange in the Chicago Board of Trade for 16 years. Before that, Mr. Kelly was a minor league baseball player for the Atlanta Braves and the Toronto Blue Jays organizations. Due to his love of sports, Mr. Kelly helps coach the freshman girls basketball team, an activity he said he loves doing.
Mr. Kelly enjoys being a part of the security team and being able to get to know the students, as well as the staff.
“It’s a pleasure coming to work everyday, and in life, if you can enjoy coming to work every day, or enjoy going to school, or whatever you end up doing… if you enjoy it, that’s all you can ask for,” Mr. Kelly said.
