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 Ruth Arbuckle Scholarship was established in 2018 by Eled V. [Bud] Toly ’56.

Miss Arbuckle was a member of the Lincoln community for more than six decades, beginning with her enrollment as a freshman in 1917.

She devoted her life to Lincoln. Following graduation from the University of Oregon, Miss Arbuckle returned to her alma mater to teach English. As college counselor for nearly three decades, she gained national recognition from admissions panels for her guidance of students into the post-high school world.

This scholarship is awarded to a student who shows a sustained love for Lincoln, demonstrates thoughtful concern, kindness and consideration for others, and maintains high academic standards. Priority consideration is given to a student planning to attend an Oregon public college or university.




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."
