Native Sons of the Golden West’s mission statement is to focus on the history of our town. As written on the plaque the first senior class graduated in 1911 with the same gold and blue colors and zebra mascot that Lincoln High School still has today. The zebra was originally inspired by the striped black and white team uniforms adopted in 1927. Originally 11 elementary districts sent students to Lincoln Union High School, including Central, Daneville, Fair Oaks, Fruitvale, Gold Hill, Lincoln, Mt. Pleasant, New Hope, Orange Valley, Sheridan and Valley View.
On Thursday, Mayor, Paul Joiner, Councilman, Stan Nader, Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services, Kerry Callahan, Jay Berns, Principal of Lincoln High School, Tom Jones, President of The Native Sons of the Golden West, and additional chapter members were present at the unveiling.
