Kyler Wang chosen as one of two Oregon 2022 U.S. Presidential Scholars

The award is among the highest honors a high school senior can receive. It was established in 1964 by President Lyndon B. Johnson. 

Kyler Wang orders a list of achievements that lead to his studies. he is co-editor of “Beyond the Herd” Lincoln High School’s student-run magazine. Wang also produced short videos on the topic of political polarization in America (“Finding Common Ground”), as well as history with historically marginalized people at the center (“Echo of Falling Water: The Induration of Celilo Falls,” and “Breaking the Curfew: The Story of Minoru Yasui”).

Different examples of Wang’s achievements embody founding Spark Teen, which started as an evening market in Portland that includes meals, clothes, art work and different merchandise made by youngsters. Wang additionally teaches with Mission: Citizen, a nonprofit that gives citizenship lessons for future U.S. residents who wish to cross the naturalization examination.

“I think there’s a general feeling that you can’t get such a good education in a public school,” Wang says. “But I think Lincoln has provided me with an opportunity.” Wang says that every teacher he comes across cares about his students. “And it’s very special.”                kturnquist@oregonian.com  @christternquist

LHS Boys Tennis Seizes OSAA Class 6A State Championship Tourney First Team Title since 1988

Lincoln won the title with 21.5 points while Jesuit came in second with 19. Semler took home the boys individual title and didn't drop a set across his four match wins.

Dinkov and Krauel's match might have been the best of the tournament as the two traded off empathetic yells after many points and ended with Dinkov celebrating a 7-6, 7-6 victory.

In the second set, Semler answered each game won by Binder to force a tiebreaker. Binder led 5-4, but Semler scored the final three points to close out the match and win the state title.

Clinching the title actually came in the singles consolation bracket when Freddie Kemple advanced to the finals.

"It was definitely a lot of work and a lot of pressure throughout the tournament. I didn't really sleep last night," Semler said. "It was a team victory. We won it this morning; Freddie clinched it. I don't know, it's an amazing feeling."

Land Acknowledgement:

It is important to acknowledge the ancestors of this place and recognize that we are here because of the sacrifices forced upon them. In remembering these communities, we honor their legacy, their lives, and their descendants -- past, present, and future.

Where Portland stands today are the historic homelands of several bands of Chinook-speaking people (including many Multnomah, Clackamas, and Watlata/Cascade villages). There were also Kalapuya (Tualatin villages) nearby and the Molalla people in the Willamette Valley. Today, their descendants are primarily members of the Grand Ronde and Siletz Confederated Tribes, with Chinook and other tribal relations at Warm Springs, Yakama, and the Chinook Nation. 

In the reconstruction of this institution, let us acknowledge that it was founded upon exclusion and erasures of many indigenous peoples, including those on whose land we are standing upon today. This acknowledgement demonstrates a commitment from Lincoln High School to work to dismantle the ongoing legacies and ideologies of settler colonialism.

 Progress is happening fast! We can’t wait to start moving in this June. Amazing light, spaces, and functionalities!



The courtyard Rose Garden featuring selected rose bushes planted above the brick surround of brass plaques honoring the names of our crowned Queens of Rosaria, have been integrated into the new landscaping design of the Lincoln High School campus. 

What about the rose bushes?

The rose bushes have been carefully removed and are being stored at Teufels Nursey until the grounds are prepared to replant them this Spring!
