2020 Rose Festival Court has crowned Lincoln High School
Queen Anya Anand of Rosaria!
CONGRATULATIONS TO QUEEN ANYA OF ROSARIA! In an unprecedented historical year, Anya Anand [ON-yuh UH-nonD] was elected 2020 Queen of Rosaria by a vote of her peers. The Lincoln High School senior was crowned July 30, 2020 in a special limited Queen’s Coronation presented by Unitus Community Credit Union, in partnership with the Royal Rosarians, at the Queens’ Walk in the International Rose Test Garden at Washington Park. The last time the court selected their own Queen was in 1930, the first year the Rose Festival started selecting Princesses from area high schools.
Anya was very active at Lincoln: as a volunteer Co-President of the Associated Student Body and Asian Student Union, as well as Co-Chair of the Multnomah Youth Commission Committee. Anya has been passionate about education from an early age and is president of REAL (or Rural Education and Literacy), in India. Anya visited a remote village in India to give free education to underprivileged girls. According to Queen Anya “This is to encourage girls to be self-sufficient, independent, and secure a better life for themselves, in an area that predominantly doesn’t provide or allow education for girls.”
Anya, who was born in Portland, Oregon, plans to attend the University of California at Davis, and major in Psychology for four years, before moving on to medical school to become a pediatrician. Anya says that one reason she selected UC Davis was because it was a “manageable drive between the school, located near Sacramento, California, and Portland.”
Lincoln students have always played a role in the Rose Festival dating back to its inception in 1908. When selection of queens moved to the high schools in 1930, the first two crown bearers were both proud Cardinals. Since that time, Lincoln has been host to 15 queens, we are proud to have Queen Anya as Lincoln's 16th queen, more than any other school in Rose Festival history.

LHSAA HONORARY MEMORIALS TO LINCOLN HIGH ALUMNI
Jim Grelle was a state champion for Lincoln High School winning back to back Oregon state titles in the 880-yard run in 1954 and 1955.
Jim graduated from the University of Oregon where he was teammates with Phil Knight and coached by Bill Bowerman.
The Oregon track star helped lay the foundation for the Ducks' middle-distance legacy as the NCAA mile champion his senior year in 1959, and runner-up in 1957 and 1958. During the 1962 Mt. SAC Relays, Grelle became just the 4th American to run a 4-minute mile and continued with winning the Mile event three years in a row.
In 1960, Jim Grelle finished eighth in the 1,500 at the Olympic Summer Games in Rome. Mr. Grelle was inducted into the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame in 1981, the Mt. SAC Relays Hall of Fame in 1991, and the Oregon Ducks Hall of Fame in 1994.
Mr. Glickman is survived by his wife, Joanne, and son Marshall, who served as Blazers president from 1988-1995 and now lives in Bend. He is also survived by daughters Jennifer and Lynn, grandsons Joel and Laz, and granddaughter Sydney.Operating under the motto of “you win with good people,” Glickman was a front office executive for the Blazers until his retirement in 1994, and he continued as president emeritus until his death. His motto paid off, as seven years after securing the franchise, the Blazers won the 1977 NBA championship. The team would later amass 814 consecutive sellouts from 1977-1995, the longest sellout streak in NBA history, and the longest streak in professional sports until baseball’s Boston Red Sox recorded a string of 820 sellouts from 2003-2013.
Harry Glickman’s deep voice became a fixture in the Portland entertainment scene starting in the 1950s as a promoter who staged some of the state’s largest events. The events ranged from performers such as Liberace and Judy Garland, to sports teams such as the Los Angeles Rams, who played an exhibition in Portland the season after they won the 1951 NFL championship. In 1958, he ran Multnomah Stadium for two years and was a member of the Multnomah Athletic Club for more than 50 years. Ten years later in 1968, Harry Glickman was inducted into the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame and in 1992, he was given Portland’s First Citizen award for civic leadership. Mr. Glickman is also a member of the International Jewish Hall of Fame and received the John W. Bunn Lifetime Achievement Award from the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in September 2019.
PPS / LHS REBUILD PROJECT 2019-2022
JUNE 2020: Hoffman Construction has completed the deep foundation work on the augercast piers, the foundation for the orchestra pit and the enclosures for the elevator pit. The construction team is now building the walls around the orchestra pit and at the classrooms along the South and West edges of the site. Augercast piles are a deep foundation system made of reinforced concrete piles or piers that are cast in place with steel reinforcement.
Hoffman Pacificmark used 10,000,000 pounds of recycled concrete saved from a local project site for the leveling fill and rock substrate. This recycled material will remain in place to provide support for the future track and field. This recycling effort kept a significant amount of material out of the waste stream providing material & cost efficiency.
