The LHSAA Endowment Fund celebrates 20 years!

And there is so much to celebrate. We are pleased to announce the addition of two new scholarships. The Ruth Arbuckle and Asa I. Arnsberg Scholarships. As of  June, 2019, as we celebrate 20 years, the Endowment Fund will have awarded approximately $178,000 in scholarships to help 60 deserving LHS students pursue their education.

The Lincoln High School Endowment Fund Committee is pleased to announce the scholarship winners for 2019

  • Ruth Arbuckle Scholarship - Willow Ostman
  • Dr. Shirley Malcom Scholarship - Spence Miller
  • Cardinal STEM-Dickey Scholarship - Quinn McElroy- Fuchs

  • Asa I Arnsberg Scholarship - Andre Gonzales

The Ruth Arbuckle Scholarship was established in 2018 by Eled V. [Bud] Toly ’56. Miss Arbuckle graduated from Lincoln High in 1921 and returned to Lincoln as an English teacher prior to becoming a counselor and scholarship coordinator during her 34 years at LHS. This scholarship will be awarded to a student who shows a sustained love for LHS, demonstrates thoughtful concern, kindness and consideration for others and maintains high academic standards. Priority consideration will be given to a student planning to attend an Oregon public college or university.

During her 45 years, her “main interest” has always been Lincoln High School and its students. Recognized as one of the nation’s finest high school counselors, she has also received a service award from the Pacific Northwest Association of College Admission Counselors. 

The Asa I Arnsberg Scholarship in honor of Asa I Arnsberg, class of 1927, given through the Arnsberg Family Foundation, Susan Arnsberg Diamond, President of Arnsberg Family Foundation, class of 57, and Robert L. Arnsberg, class of 1960, Director, Arnsberg Foundation Board. As Susan Diamond stated:

"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 2 or 4-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 criteria."
