The Bridge Builders Award
sponsored by the Lincoln High School/Chapel Hill High School Joint Alumni Association, this $1000 one time award for two CHCCS graduating seniors who demonstrates a commitment to building an equitable society that is free of racial discrimination
Each year the Lincoln High School-Chapel Hill High School Joint Alumni Association awards $1,000 chooses to two high school seniors who are working to build racial harmony in our community. Until the mid-‘60s, African-American and white students attended separate schools: Lincoln High for the African-American students and Chapel Hill High for the white students. Although the two schools were only a mile apart physically, they were worlds apart culturally. The LHS-CHHS Joint Alumni Association honors high school seniors who are working to bridge the cultural gaps between the African-American and white communities. The Award recipients, one African-American and one white, are building cross-cultural respect and understanding with their activities and projects. Recent award winners created a multicultural church orchestra, an after-school program, and a racial sensitivity training session for teachers.
