The Lincoln School Project began in the Fall of 2015. A committee was formed to explore the possibility of creating an exhibit for the Highland House Museum to tell the story of integration of the Hillsboro Elementary Schools in the mid 1950's. The committee is made up of Historical Society members Kati Burwinkel, Pamela Nickell, Jim Rooney, Deb Koehl, author Charlotte Pack, former Lincoln School students Virginia Harewood, Carolyn Goins, Theresa Williams, Eleanor Cumberland, Joyce Kitrell, 100 year old "Marching Mother" Miss Elsie Young. Also participating in the planning of the exhibit are Project Consultants Susan Banyas, author of The Hillsboro Story, and University of Cincinnati history professor, Dr. Fritz Casey-Leininger. The exhibit will be centered around a ten minute documentary "short" using the oral histories of the people who lived this event. Cincinnati documentary filmmaker, Andrea Torrice has been hired to produce the film. The project has received grant support from the Ohio Humanities and South Central Power. Seen above are Joyce Clemons Kittrell (the plaintiff in the case), Eleanor Curtis Cumberland, author Susan Banyas, Carolyn Goins, filmmaker Andrea Torrice, Project Director Kati Burwinkel, Virginia Harewood, and 100 year old "Marching Mother" Miss Elsie Steward Young at the National Underground RR Freedom Center in Cincinnati.
