Lincoln High Receives National Honor

As School of Opportunity!

"Lincoln High School is one of eight U.S. public high schools honored as a “School of Opportunity” by the National Education Policy Center. The honor merited a mention in a Washington Post education blog “Answer Sheet,” which has published the winners of the project for several years and which notes that the project recognizes public high schools that work to close opportunity gaps by “creating learning environments that reach every student.”

There are places I remember,

All my life, though some have changed,

Some forever, not for better,

Some have gone and some remain,

All these places had their moments,

With lovers and friends I still can recall.

Some are dead and some are living...

In my life, I've loved them all.

..."In My Life" written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney

Thanks to Betty Hunt Foster for sending this song.

Help Us Remember


Our mascot, the LINKS, exemplifies perfectly the idea of connection, reliance and trust.  As time passes, these connections are strengthened by recalling memories, conversations, creating new website messages and in sharing photos. 

In life and death, we honor our classmates.  The “In Memory” section is dedicated to our deceased classmates.  Here, we celebrate and pay tribute to their lives.

Your input is appreciated.  Please click on “Contact Us” to reach Cathy Stump Rauch or Donna Filbert Ewoldt.


Thank you for sharing your personal stories about our deceased classmates on our IN MEMORY page. Your comments brighten the memories of those who have gone before us and help us to better connect with each other. We will always remember these special friends.
