Our very special Time to Celebrate!
In 2019, LHS will celebrate 150 years as the first Public High school in the Pacific Northwest. We want your Memorabilia for the 150th celebration, and the LHSAA Oregon Historical Society Museum Exhibit. The Exhibit is in late March of 2019. LHSAA welcomes donations of Cardinal newspapers, programs, pictures, Trophies, scrapbooks, and many other items from Lincoln High's beginnings to the present. The archives presently located room 210 at the First United Methodist Church on SW Jefferson. If you have any Lincoln collectibles for donation. Call the LHSAA Board Archivist, Dana Cress @503-952-6084. Think 150 years! Email us at email@example.com
In our Sesquicentennial year, Lincoln’s Constitution Team places 1st at the State “We the People” Competition. Grant HS placed 2nd, Franklin 4th and Cleveland 5th with Lake Oswego 6th. Our urban public schools are growing the future leaders of our democracy! Lincoln and Grant (wild card recipient) will head to DC for the National Competition in April. Go PPS! Go Oregon! Congratulations to all the students involved! Thank you to LHS teacher advisor Patrick Magee-Jenks and all of our dedicated volunteer coaches. Go Cards! #150LHS

LHSAA tries very hard to keep a list of deceased alumni. Help is needed now more than ever.
We have always needed help identifying those who have passed away elsewhere, but now even in the Portland area it is difficult to identify Lincoln alumni. The Oregonian, families, and other newspapers have cut obituaries to only a few words and sometimes do not identify high school attended or even maiden names in many cases.
If you know of a Lincoln graduate who has passed away recently please let us know by sending the obituary to LHSAA - 4931 SW 76th Ave #282, Portland, OR 97225-1805. Or email us at our new address. email@example.com. Let us know the name, year, school name, and date and place of death.
Thank you sincerely for your help.
