About the Dorothy W. Gifford Chair Award
Each year, a Lincoln School faculty member is nominated by his or her peers to be the recipient of this award. Given for excellence in teaching and service to the school after the fashion of Dorothy Gifford, the award honors dedication and willingness to exceed professional requirements in the life of the school. Dorothy came to Lincoln in 1926 as Head of the Science Department and taught here for 45 years. After her retirement, Dorothy continued to be deeply involved in the affairs of the school.
