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!
