Bill was a much beloved English teacher at Lincoln High School and was named teacher of the year, representing Portland, Oregon at a ceremony in Washington, DC. One school principal stated, “Bill was a legendary and impactful teacher who meant so much to hundreds/thousands of students and families." His students admired him for his empathy, his listening ear, his wit, his intellect, his true passion for ideas, and his love for helping students succeed, not only within his class, but also within themselves.
We are counting on LHS Alumni to support this scholarship honoring Mr. Lynch, a beloved Lincoln High School Teacher who enlightened youth with the powerful essence of reading and thinking between the lines.
