THEY’VE MADE THEIR DECISIONS. Our three seniors have decided where they are going to spend the next four years.
Florainne had her choice of seven colleges to choose from. She decided on Union College in upstate New York, one of the Little Ivies in the Northeast. Florainne was recruited by Union’s multi-cultural program. She plans to major in English.
Sam is very happy to be headed to Norman, Oklahoma where he will enroll at the University of Oklahoma. Sam is looking forward to playing football for his favorite college team. He turned down offers from several small college programs to attend O.U.
Olga has decided on Hendrix College, which is located minutes from Little Rock, Arkansas. She had her pick of five colleges from around the country. The Women’s Soccer Coach is eagerly looking forward to having her play for the team this fall.

Here is a quick look at our seniors from Lake Highlands High School in Dallas:
Sam was the leading Wide Receiver on the football team and was recruited to play for several D-I
and D-III college programs. He was a star in the classroom as well, taking 8 AP courses and finished with an overall average grade of 90.
Florainne established an impressive record on many fronts. She was elected V.P. of her junior class, appeared in several school theatrical productions and showed enormous potential as a writer.
Despite a heavy AP course load she still posted a 94 average.
Olga was a two-time Captain of the Varsity Soccer Team, won the Gold Award for scouting and
was a featured dancer on the Wranglers, the school’s award winning dance team. She was also on the AP track throughout her years in high school.

"Good Morning Mr. Allen, I want to personally thank you for the work that you do through The Extra Dimension, Inc. It is likely safe to say that every admission counselor with a remote level of awareness recognizes the facts that are highlighted in your mission statement. It is great to know that there is an organization in Dallas that exists to bridge the gap on the ground level by individually supporting talented students who may not have equitable levels of access or guidance in the college process."
