Ever wonder, who those people are that greet you at the door, or stand around the atrium at lunch, or are seen around shows and events. Well there is no excuse anymore. Here they are…
Mrs. Rebecca Manning; the woman that sits outside the school, and hugs anyone that wants a hug, is our very own Chief Executive Officer or CEO. “I ensure the continued growth in respect to academic excellence coupled with high end arts infusion. In other words, I am responsible to give our students the best!” she says about her job. She was brought Lincoln Park, by none other than Lincoln Park’s own founder Dr. Trombetta. “I have known Dr. Trombetta for many years, we actually taught together in East Liverpool, Ohio. He was well aware of my passion for the arts and my love for education.”
She says Lincoln Park has changed education because “arts education at Lincoln Park is unmatched and is competitive to many college programs in some respects. School choice is all about giving students the right to choose their educational path.” Finally, if she were stuck on an island and only had one wish, (and this is a clever wish) she’d wish for Aladdin’s genie lamp so she could have three more wishes.
Mr. P.K. Poling, as many know, is Lincoln Park’s principal. His job includes a list of many things, such as curriculum, instruction, staff development, budget, hiring and evaluation of staff. Mr. Poling was led to Lincoln Park by the chance to work in a school of choice and the opportunity to work with great staff and students. “[Lincoln Park] has raised the bar for arts instruction, and academic instruction as well,” he says. Finally, if he were stuck on an island and only had one wish, he would wish that someone would come and get him.
