Lantern Cup Award

Lantern Cups have been presented at graduation to seniors since 1924, who, in the opinion of the Pendleton High School faculty, have shown significant personal development, have maintained a high standard of scholarship, and contributed in a marked way to the success of their class. 

PHS Faculty, that have been on staff for three years, vote annually for four recipients of the Lantern Cup Award.  This award is the oldest and considered to be the most prestigious award at PHS.

We need your help!

The Leadership class at Pendleton High School has researched past Lantern Cup Recipients in the last few years.   We have encountered some problems finding all of the past winners (either principals did not turn in their notes or the information was NOT in the EO/Yearbook) – as they were announced at graduation. We have need for any information regarding ANY FORMER Lantern Cup Recipients that are NOT identified. Please (email Stu Clem) if you know  any information that would help us.
