The Student Pledge was created by students in 6th grade under the guidance of former teacher, Ms. Cloud as part of an Advisory project. Each student contributed a line to the pledge. When school social worker, Mrs. Pollard, heard the pledge, she was inspired to share it with the whole school via the morning announcements. The rest is history. Since then, it has become a Lincoln tradition and an authentic expression of student driven leadership.
