Good morning Lincoln High! Welcome to LINKS LIVE! The Lincoln High Morning News Show!


I’m Jacob Vanderord, and I’m Tyler Schumacher


Attention Lincoln High Students- anyone interested in participating on Lincoln High Swimming and Diving Team should attend a short informational meeting on Tuesday, November 5th, at 2:15, in the Lincoln High Swimming Pool. This will be a very brief meeting concerning those steps to be eligible to participate. If swimming and diving are of interest to you, please attend.


There will be a meeting today at 3:15 pm in SOUTH GYM for all boys grades 9-12 interested in trying out for basketball—BE ON TIME! and that is from Coach Noble


And now a message from Hope Squad:

““The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, or not to anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.” – Buddha


Chadron State College will be here in the Counseling Center on Wednesday during 4th period.


Native American students, if you are going on the UNL Symposium trip on Nov. 14th, please turn in your permission slips to the Counseling Center or to Mr. Keller in Room 308 by TOMORROW, Tuesday, Nov. 5th. 


“Save the date! Lincoln High’s annual Make-A-Wish fundraiser, Hoops 4 Hope is Friday, November 15th at 7 pm in Johnson Gym. Admission is only $5. Hoops 4 Hope is an event where Lincoln High’s teachers and staff face off in a basketball game to raise funds to grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Be a hero and make a difference, and of course, go have fun! Teachers and staff, it’s not too late to participate…the link to the form is Y2GU. Thank you and we hope to see everyone there!”


Now here is a message from the Ping Pong Club and StuCo.

Riek Bol:

 Would you like to play some competitive ping pong? Well then you should sign up for the LHS Ping Pong Tournament. This year, the LHS Ping Pong Club is partnering up with Student Council to put on the event. It will be on November 8th at 7:00 P.M. in the East Balcony of Johnson Gym.

It costs $3 to play individually (singles). It costs $4 to play as a team (doubles). To play both doubles and singles it costs $6 per individual. Which means you can sign up for both singles and doubles. To sign-up, see Carter in the Media Center. Sign-ups will be November 4th through November 6th. We will not be doing sign-ups on the day of the event. We hope to see you there!


And now a message from Jenna Fuller


“American Sign Language Promo Script: 

(Jenna signs “Hi, My name is Jenna”)

Do you want to learn this unique language? 

Come learn American Sign Language (ASL) each week after school and immerse yourself in a new learning community! 

During our first meeting we will begin to learn how to sign the alphabet. We will test your knowledge at the end of our time.

This group will meet in room 100M TUESDAYS starting tomorrow! 

Can’t wait to see you there!

November is Native American Heritage Month. 

“Standing Bear (c. 1829 – 1908) was a Ponca chief who successfully argued in Nebraska’s U.S. District Court in 1879 that Native Americans are “”persons within the meaning of the law”” and have the right of habeas corpus, thus becoming the first Native American judicially granted civil rights under American law. 


This bronze bust of Ponca Chief Standing Bear was sculpted by artist Benjamin Victor in 2017. The bust is a variant by the same artist of a ten foot full bodied statue of Ponca Chief Standing Bear that was dedicated on Lincoln’s Centennial Mall after a complete renovation of the site in October 2017. Dr. Edward F. Zimmer received the bust from the artist after being consulted on the sculpture’s design. Dr. Zimmer decided that Lincoln High School’s Media Center should be the final recipient of this bust. Lincoln High School thanks Dr. Zimmer for the generous gift, and the reminder of Chief Standing Bear’s  legacy for advancing civil rights for all. Stop by the library and see our display in honor of National Native American Heritage month!”


Here’s another fantastic announcement from Fellowship of Christian Athletes! This week we’ll be doing the old “switch-a-roo” and have Coach Escamilla lead Tuesday’s lesson.  While it’s top secret, you can bet the youth movement will bring unmatched energy and wisdom! Also, don’t forget about tomorrow’s special deadline for the life-altering Weekend of Champions event.  Remember, we meet at 7:15 a.m. in Room 402 and it’ll last only 20 minutes. Hope to see you there!


If you weren’t able to attend the LHS Speech Team’s informational meeting, but are still curious about the Team, new members are welcomed throughout the fall semester! Please join them ANY Monday in Room 302 after school to learn more! 


Collective Impact Lincoln is hosting a Youth Community Builder Workshop! The workshop will focus on identifying community assets, organizing for change, and how to make your dream project a reality.

We hope you will join us for the afternoon to connect with your peers and create positive change in your community!
