Six Lincoln HS students were honored by the Club this past year. They attended meetings of the Club and spoke to members about their high school activities, their interests and values, and their plans for the future. The students are selected by Lincoln Principal Peyton Chapman, who is an honorary member of Portland Pearl Rotary. Chapman says she looks for students to nominate who are leaders, display various talents and show a special interest in community service. Honored students receive a certificate from the Club.
