Larry and Ruth Vaughan established this fund in 1990 in memory of their son, Victor Vaughan. Victor showed persistence in developing his talents and skills in Lincoln Public Schools. These talents and skills allowed Victor to succeed as a member of the 84th Army Band in Europe after his graduation from Lincoln High School in 1963. Interest earned from this endowment fund will be used for teachers in Lincoln Public Schools who need financial assistance to carry out a special project of a creative nature, or a proposal that would help many special education students. Award amount will vary each year.
Any Lincoln Public Schools teacher is eligible for this award. Selection for the award will be facilitated by the Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools. Requests for special education projects shall receive first consideration.
