Supporters of Tacoma’s Lincoln High School are working to raise $100,000 in scholarship money to celebrate the school’s upcoming centennial. The cornerstone for the school was laid in 1913, and the school opened for scholarly business in 1914. Supporters hope to celebrate the school’s 100 years with $100,000 in scholarship funds. A similar effort raised $75,000 when Lincoln marked its 75th anniversary, and that fund awarded 12 scholarships to Lincoln grads this year.
