Manitowoc Ships Pride!


Welcome, Ships, to your very own Manitowoc Nation.
The Manitowoc Nation is for alumni, community members, businesses, students, staff, friends, family and supporters of Ships (and those aspiring to be future Ships).

MPSD-nation-fans.jpgWe are your trusted source of information about what's happening with your fellow Ships, Nation events, reunions and celebrations of our current and alumni students and staff. Alumni can share class reunion and class notes information on the Nation website. Community partnerships, such as youth apprenticeships and other job, career and networking opportunities, also can be shared here.

We invite you to join the Manitowoc Nation today! It's free and a great way to show your #ShipsPride. Students, staff, alumni and the community are part of an exceptional legacy that began when Lincoln High opened its doors on Lake Michigan in 1924. (The school district's roots date back to 1850: read more.) The Nation and its members work to support the Ships and each other.

Learn more about opportunities to support the Nation by clicking the Join tab to volunteer. Please keep information up-to-date and remain active in our Manitowoc community. Share your ideas here.

Thank you for your support. We look forward to building a vibrant Manitowoc Nation!

    Wallen Creates Hometown Landmark

    A new landmark showcasing Manitowoc's heritage will be enjoyed for generations to come and residents have 1960 Lincoln High School alumnus R.T. ("Skip") Wallen to thank for it. Wallen, an internationally known sculptor and wildlife artist, created the "Spirit of the Rivers" bronze monument installed in the past month at 4815 Memorial Drive, Two Rivers near the Manitowoc-Two Rivers border. The 30-ton sculpture features a 10-foot tall Native American couple foraging a 20-foot tall birch bark canoe and being greeted ashore by an elder. The monument is lit at night and surrounded by commemorative bricks listing private donors who helped make the nine-year, $1 million project a reality. A dedication ceremony was held Sunday, Sept. 16. Wallen, 76, was born and raised in Manitowoc and his mother was a secretary for the School Board. After graduating from Lincoln and UW-Madison, Wallen moved to Alaska where he worked as a wildlife biologist and famous artist. Manitowoc Lincoln is grateful and proud that R.T. Wallen is one of our alumni!!  See great photos and a Herald Times Reporter story from Sunday's dedication ceremony. Learn more on the Spirit of the Rivers Facebook page and in this HTR cover story and videos.
