Founder’s Day/Alumni Weekend 2004 Photo Gallery

April 30 through May 2, 2004 was a time to remember for alumni and friends of Lincoln University.

While 2004 marks the 50th anniversary of Lincoln’s 1954 Emeritus class and the reunion for class years ending in the 4s and 9s, the University invited all of its graduating classes back to the campus to celebrate Lincoln’s 150th anniversary. The following are scenes from the Emeritus Luncheon, the Alumni Photo Session and the Founder’s Day & Alumni Awards Banquet, which honored more than 50 alumni for their financial contributions to Lincoln University. As of May 1, 2004, Lincoln reunion classes raised more than $520,000 for this year’s event.

Members of Lincoln’s class of 1954 were honored on May 2, 2004 during the Founder’s Day Emeritus Luncheon. University President Ivory V. Nelson, Ph.D. (third from right) presented attending members of the 1954 class with Emeritus Alumni Medallions in a ceremony during the luncheon.
