PHILADELPHIA CHAPTER OF ALUMNI ASSOCIATION OF LINCOLN UNIVERSITY TO HOST THE FIFTH ANNUAL DR. FRANK  (TICK) COLEMAN AWARDS LUNCHEON

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, PA ~ The Philadelphia Chapter of the Alumni Association of Lincoln University (AALU) will host the Fifth Annual Dr. Frank “Tick” Coleman Awards Luncheon at 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 21, 2007 at the Holiday Inn Philadelphia Stadium in Philadelphia.

The luncheon celebrates outstanding alumni achievements and raises funds for student scholarships. Recipients of the award also have enthusiastically supported the University and the AALU.  This year’s honorees include:

  • Dr. Edward S. Cooper ’46, retired cardiologist and professor emeritus, University of Pennsylvania;
  • Donald Hunt ’77, “The Philadelphia Tribune” sports editor & author;
  • Rep. Cherelle L. Parker ’94, member of the Pennsylvania State House of Representatives, 200th Legislative District; and
  • Sharman Lawrence MHS ’98, founder of the AALU Graduate Chapter.

Dr. Coleman ’35, affectionately known as "Mr. Lincoln University,” is a native Philadelphian who has advised and counseled young people for over 70 years.  He created this luncheon to celebrate the history of Lincoln University and to recognize those alumni whose achievements bring honor to his alma mater.

Dr. Coleman was the first black quarterback on the Central High School Public League Championship teams in 1929 and 1930.  Being one of the first three black scouts to earn the Eagle Scout Badge, the Boy Scouts of America has named a service award in his honor.  He has made significant contributions to the Philadelphia community through his work with such organizations as the Christian St. YMCA, Salvation Army, Peace Corp, and the NAACP.  Dr. Coleman also has received Lincoln University’s Outstanding Alumnus Award for his robust commitment to the university and his efforts as a member of its Board of Trustees.

A ticket to the luncheon costs $50.  Proceeds benefit The Archie Goodwin Jr. Financial Aid Fund that supports students attending Lincoln University.  For tickets and souvenir booklet advertisements, contact Rachel Branson at (973) 641-0884 or luphillyalumni@gmail.com.
