  • I am an alumnus of LHS class of 1985. My niece is currently attending the school and I am deeply saddened to see how the Lincoln has diminished its standard of discipline along with its requirements of excellence. I would like to see the school aspire to dignity and higher education again. It is hard to say that I am proud of this school anymore. I am hopeful that it can be revived but it will take a very STRONG person who believes in the children again.

  • I am a 1952 graduate of Lincoln and we are planning a reunion for June of next 2009. We are having difficulty fiinding the biography of the first principal, T. D. Marshall (Tueria Dell Marshall, 1883-1960. We know that he was buried there near the school. Do you have Mr. Marshall's bio there in the library? If you have it, please email it to me, or mail it to Kaye Peoples-706 Dunwoodie Dr. San Antonio, 78219. Thank you in advance.
