The Lincoln High School class of 1977 brought their SPIRIT back for their 45th high school reunion to make new memories using the theme, “JUST THE WAY WE ARE!!”
From 1975 to 1977, the class of ‘77 formed a unique bond that still exists 45 years later. The majority of the class of ‘77 came together through their academics and extracurricular activities where there was a place for all classmates to get involved as class officers, the ASB, yearbook staff, the Buzz Newspaper, sports teams, drill teams, letter carriers, song leaders, cheerleaders, pep squad, band, ROTC or other school clubs. They found a place where they all fit in together.
Life was not perfect back then, but it was the school SPIRIT and classmate closeness, then and today, that still takes them to a happy place that continues to bring them back together for every reunion, remembering the carefree fun times at LINCOLN HIGH SCHOOL.
The class of 1977 celebrated their reunion Oct. 28th – Oct. 30th at the Sheraton La Jolla Hotel with a Friday evening Meet and Greet, Saturday evening dinner and dance, along with guest speaker and former teacher, Mr. Donald Mitchell, who shared encouraging words. Awards were presented to several classmates. Class President Karen Christian-Williams delivered a warm speech and recognized the hard-working 45th Class Reunion Core Committee. Photographs captured the spirit of Saturday evening and the Class of 1977 ended their 45th reunion with a Sunday Morning Farewell Brunch, “Just the Way They Were.”
