Lincoln County High School is proud to announce that 71 seniors have been named as Tennessee Scholars for the 2013-2014 school year.

Tennessee Scholars is a prestigious program that focuses on achievement through academics, community service, school attendance, behavior, and development of workforce skills. Beginning in 1994 as Appalachian Inter Mountain Scholars (AIMS), AIMS had a goal to motivate students to graduate better prepared for job markets and other post-secondary endeavors.

AIMS went through a name change in 2003 to be known as Tennessee Scholars and has since had more than 30,000 student graduate as a member of their program.
