Lincoln Leopards have received a special gift from a former student just in time for the first day of school.
When they step foot in front of the school Sept. 5 students will be welcomed by a personalized entrance to their school, donated by Brian Parks, a Lincoln alum and a high school grad.
Parks, who owns a design and landscaping business B. Parks Landscaping, personally donated his time last week to install brick pavers at the front of the school.
The design features an L for Lincoln. He wanted to give something back to his old alma mater and the school community. The gesture also ties in with the incoming of Joseph Colangelo as principal who is a long time friend of Parks.
