Many of the items are from students of industrial arts instructor,
Jason Hoffman, who specializes in wood working and metal sculpture;

Spove is retiring this month after spending a career that spanned 25
years at LCHS. Every one of the artists in attendance praised Ms.

craftsmanship and creativity shown here promises a bright future for
the arts at Lincoln High School. We should be proud of the educators

itself. The burnished wood floor, wall colors, and customized
lighting created an atmosphere that enhanced the exhibit.
