It is the vision of the Kenny Washington Stadium Foundation that the renovation of the athletic stadium and football field at Abraham Lincoln High School shall create a safer playing environment for its athletes and the youth of Lincoln Heights. It is our hope these improvements will not only instill greater pride and ownership in one of the oldest high schools in the city, but also encourage student athletes to excel in the classroom and on the field as they prepare for greater challenges in the world at large; furthermore, naming of the stadium, Kenneth S.
