Welcome to the official website of the Lincoln Lynx Alumni Association, the alumni organization of Lincoln High School in Seattle, Washington. Even though the school closed in 1981, the building is alive. The LLAA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and annually awards scholarships to a number of outstanding high school graduates.
The Lincoln Lynx Alumni Association has roots going back to 1910. Membership in the LLAA is open to any person who attended Lincoln as a student, staff, or faculty member. The LLAA has a scholarship program for lineal descendants of Lincoln graduates, promotes and preserves the history of the school, and has events and programs to strengthen the bonds between its members and the community. The Totem II newspaper, published three times a year, strives to reconnect and encourages contact of members. To submit an article or news, click on "Contact Us".
Past activities sponsored by the alumni groups have included an open house held at our school, T-Day (our Traditions Day celebrated in February) and a car show across from Dick's Drive-In on 45th We have also participated in the annual Wallingford Kiddies Parade held annually in July. Every year in the spring or early summer, the Annual Luncheon is held to bring together all classes, to share in the memories, and to promote the spirit of Lincoln High School. You can find information about upcoming events in this website. There are always volunteer opportunities in LLAA. Go to the "Contact Us" page and we'll get you involved!
We hope you will join the association. We know you will enjoy being a part of the Lincoln family!!
2015 Annual Meeting
The Lincoln Lynx Alumni Association (LLAA) will be holding its Annual Meeting on Saturday, October 17, 2015 again at Lincoln High School in the Little Theatre at 1 pm. The LLAA will be electing a new president for a two year term.
The LLAA Nominating Committee has unanimously selected Monica Weber as the candidate for LLAA President. It is our pleasure to introduce you to Monica:
Monica Fosmire Weber has been the LLAA Class of '73 Rep since her 40th reunion. She graduated from WSU in 1978 with a degree in Education. She also earned a Master’s degree at the UW in 2007. She has been a public school teacher for thirty-six years, nine of which were in Renton and twenty-four in Snohomish. In between, she reluctantly admits she taught at a private prep school in southern California. Currently, she teaches high school government classes in law and economics. During most of her teaching career, she was actively involved in the teachers' union, serving on executive boards and negotiating teams, as well as doing a five year stint as president in Snohomish. She knows Robert's Rules of Order. She was also invited to serve on the board of KSER, a public radio station in Everett. She looks forward to her increased involvement in the LLAA as the reopening of Lincoln approaches. She would like to pave a way to increased alumni membership and even better communication with the mighty and aging Lynx, and supports having meetings in Seattle because it's good to be in the 'hood, even if you chose to live elsewhere.
The high school will be open for tours following the meeting. This may be our last chance to see the school before the remodel and re-opening in 2019. We encourage you to be active in the organization and welcome your participation at this important meeting. Go Lynx!!
