[SEPT. 5, 2006]  Lincoln College recently appointed Rick Samuels of Mattoon as a major gift officer.

Samuels, a native of Nebraska, previously worked as the head coach of men's basketball at Eastern Illinois University. Samuels has an extensive background in athletic fundraising. Prior to EIU he served as the assistant coach at Iowa State University, where he was responsible for recruiting and facilitating the summer camp program.

"We are fortunate to have Samuels' experience and ability to raise money at Lincoln College," said John Hutchinson, college president. "Lincoln College must expand our private support in order to maintain and enhance the high level of quality that our students expect. I feel Samuels will be an asset at a time when public resources are becoming more and more limited."
