Lincoln High Seniors are College Bound

Lincoln Seniors
College-bound Hornets.
With one month of hard work to go, more than 235 Lincoln High School seniors out of a class of 341 have been accepted and are planning to attend a community college or university next year. Of these 235 students, 101 will be entering a four-year university in fall 2012

Although college entry requirements are more rigorous than ever, Lincoln High students have been admitted to more than 60 universities across the nation including Brown, UCLA, UC Berkeley, Georgetown, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Morehouse, St. Johns, UCSD and SDSU. Through perseverance and dedication, the class of 2012 has laid the foundation of a college-going culture at Lincoln High School that will continue and flourish for years to come.

To aid the growing number of Lincoln students attending college, the Lincoln High Scholarship Fund has been established. The fund was formed in response to rising college costs and a desire to make college more accessible and affordable to Lincoln students.

This year Lincoln High School's goal is to raise more than $25,000 to support of our college-bound seniors. The scholarships include:
  • Willie James Jones Scholarships
  • Monique Palmer Scholarships
  • Principal Scholarships
  • Counselor Scholarships
  • Alumni Scholarships
All scholarships will be awarded during the Senior Awards Night on June 5. If you are interested in contributing to the Lincoln High School Scholarship Fund or visiting the Lincoln High School College and Career Center, contact Conrado Castro at or (619) 266-6530 x 2325, or Isela Medina at
