A long desired goal for LCHS has been the establishment of a student scholarship. This is now a reality with the proceeds of the Newman Memorial Fund approved to source the first $2,000 tuition scholarship award. The fund was designated for former LCHS President Ethan Newman, also the longest-served Eugene postmaster. This award will go to a college-bound Lane County high school graduate selected by the scholarship committee. Selection will be on the basis of a 500 word written essay on one of several stipulated historical topics and the recommendation of at least one of the student’s teachers.
