~ The LHSAA Endowment Fund celebrates 20 years ~
We are pleased to announce the addition of two new scholarships in honor of long-time college counselor and English teacher Ruth Arbuckle and Asa I. Arnsberg, who graduated in 1927. As of June, 2019, the Endowment Fund has awarded approximately $178,000 in scholarships to help 60 deserving Lincoln students pursue their education beyond high school.
The Asa I Arnsberg Scholarship was established in 2018 by Susan Arnsberg Diamond, class of 1957 and president of the Arnsberg Family Foundation; and Robert L. Arnsberg, class of 1960 and director of the foundation board.
As Susan Diamond said of her father: "I think Dad would be extremely pleased to know another ambitious, needy college freshman will receive some additional funding for the first year, whether it’s a two or four-year state college or university in Oregon. Higher education is so necessary in today’s world, and economically an Oregon resident’s best financial option.Thus, the recipient must attend an Oregon state-run college, and need is this scholarship’s #1 criterion."
Congratulations to the 2019 LHSAA Scholarship Recipients!
