Who We Are

Washington-Lincoln Laurels for Leaders was established in 1957 as a way of honoring and recognizing the achievements of ASB presidents of San Diego County high schools.

Laurels founder Dr. Frank Lowe, then-president of the San Diego Unified School District, believed that such recognition would encourage a lifelong commitment to service among the student leaders. This year, in addition to the luncheon event, Laurels for Leaders has partnered with The Blanchard Foundation and U.S. Bank to offer a Student Situational Self Leadership Seminar and Financial Education Seminar as part of our annual recognition of San Diego ASB Presidents. At this dynamic morning event, students and their ASB advisors will learn a set of skills that will stay with them their entire lives. The Washington-Lincoln Laurels for Leaders Foundation is a non-profit organization 501(c)(3) governed by a board of directors.
