As our community mourns the loss of a Highland Community Schools alumni it’s safe to say Levi Linscheid left a lasting impression everywhere he went. As we browsed through yearbooks his contagious smile was always one of the first to pop off the pages. His involvement in athletics, clubs and organizations showed that he wasn’t just here because he had to be, he was a proud member because he chose to make the most out of every opportunity possible. There is no doubt in our mind that the legacy to “Live Like Levi” will have a positive impression on the youth in our community for years to come. #highlandthrowback #throwbackthursday
