The Placer County Board of Supervisors will present a commemorative coin to long-time Lincoln High School teacher Mark Fowler Tuesday, March 25 to honor him for his many years of community service. Mr. Fowler says he is humbled by the gesture.
Fowler was instrumental in creating the school’s highly successful School Farm Program, served as football coach and helped instill in his students an appreciation and understanding of nature during his many years at Lincoln High. Fowler enjoyed teaching outside the classroom.
He retired as a teacher several years ago. Fowler also served for many years as a member of the Rural Lincoln Municipal Advisory Council (MAC) before leaving his post there recently. He remains active on a number of nonprofit boards and community organizations.
Supervisor Weygandt noted that a Mark Fowler Scholarship Fund for Lincoln High graduates is being created by area residents and the Lincoln Community Foundation. Plans for the scholarship fund were unveiled during a ceremony honoring Fowler at the Rural Lincoln MAC’s Feb. 24 meeting.
The board created the commemorative coin program in 2002 to recognize acts of heroism, longstanding community service and exceptional acts that dramatically improved or impacted people’s lives.
For information about the scholarship fund, contact Pam Mathus at 916-434-2492 or Susan Cope at 916-645-8269. Written correspondence may be sent to the Lincoln Community Foundation, in care of Pam Mathus, 600 Sixth St., Lincoln CA 95648.
Second District Supervisor Robert M. Weygandt, the board member who represents the Lincoln area, is inviting community members to attend the March 25 meeting to help recognize Fowler. The meeting will take place at 9 a.m. in the County Administrative Center at 175 Fulweiler Ave. in Auburn.
