Recruiters visit LHS regularly and will be offering the opportunity for students to take the ASVAB at school.  In the library and at Mrs. Pierce’s office in the old Golden One Office we have pamphlets and books about the different branches.  Students can check out ASVAB for Dummies to study for the ASVAB exam.  This book has been highly recommended by the recruiters to study for the exam.
