Lincoln High Students Honor ‘Walkouts’ Teacher

(EGPNews) – Students at Lincoln High School on Tuesday held a birthday celebration to honor former teacher Sal Castro, known for his active participation in the “East L.A. High School Walkouts” of the 1960s, and for advocating for education reform. Many of the students signed a pledge to name the entrance of the school “Castro Court,” according to Lincoln High School teacher and M.E.C.H.A. Sponsor, Art Lincon.

The students, spearheaded by M.E.C.H.A., decided on their own and planned the “naming” ceremony and birthday party, Licon informed EGP by email.
