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).
We 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.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to building a vibrant Manitowoc Nation!
This afternoon a Manitowoc Public School District student will be on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange to help ring the closing bell.
You can watch it live here - https://www.nyse.com/bell - the bell ringing will be shown after 2:56 p.m.
Lia Haile, 13, is being honored for her work helping children and families staying at Hope House, a Manitowoc homeless shelter. What started as Lia's effort to make sure every child who has a birthday while at the shelter gets a party and presents has grown into a much larger program called the Hopeful Hearts Club that has brought volunteers and donations to the shelter.
Lincoln High School graduate John W. Miller has been appointed to the Library of Congress Trust Fund Board by President Barack Obama.
Miller, a Manitowoc native and 1992 Lincoln High alumnus, is the former president and CEO of Miller-St. Nazianz Inc. and the founder of Arenberg Holdings, LLC. He serves on the Board of the United Way of Greater Milwaukee and the University of Wisconsin Law School Board of Visitors.
After graduating from Lincoln High School, he earned a bachelor's degree in political science from Marquette University in 1996, a master's degree in public policy from Georgetown University in 2000 and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Wisconsin Law School in 2006.
Wilson Jr. High 7th grader Lia Haile is featured in a new promotional video shot this month for U.S. Cellular's "Future of Good" campaign.
Lia won U.S. Cellular's contest last year for her inspirational work creating the Hopeful Hearts Club, which supports children and families at a Manitowoc homeless shelter called Hope House, including throwing birthday parties for children. U.S. Cellular donated $10,000 to Lia's group and the shelter.
"We have awesome students and an awesome community," said Wilson Principal Lee Thennes after seeing the new video showcasing Lia, Wilson and the Manitowoc community.
In the video, Lia said all students can help make a difference.
"It's about following your heart," she said. "Everybody has a gift or a talent or a passion. Use that gift to help others.... Watch the ripple effect of your one act of kindness spread far and wide."
