Lincoln’s Metamorphosis: A Study of Douglas’ Role in Making Lincoln

The April Heights Lecture will feature a founding father of The Heights, Prof. Edward C. Smith, speaking on one of our nation's greatest presidents: Abraham Lincoln. Prof. Smith will draw upon his Civil War-era expertise to highlight the role of Frederick Douglas in the metamorphosis of Abraham Lincoln from a small town country lawyer into the great man whose speeches are memorized by school children 150 years later.

Mr. Thompson and Mr. Berthe share with us a proper understanding of a commonly misprioritized activity. Athletics are important, but for reasons that sometimes escape us. Listen to these two Heights teacher-coaches talk about our sons' true love, and how we can do more to help them get the most from their athletic experience at The Heights and beyond.
