My name is Henry M. Lancaster II,
member of the Lincoln University
graduating class of 1976.
I am a candidate for a seat on the Lincoln University Board of Trustees as an Alumni representative. I am humbled to have been nominated and am asking for your support of my candidacy.
Lincoln University is not unique in its efforts to provide a competitive liberal arts education to students of color from around the globe. It is an enterprise in the business of higher education. As with any business it must have forth-right, competent and visionary leadership to meet everyday demands, current goals and future challenges. Lincoln has made a tremendous leap forward in the appointment of Dr. Brenda Allen as its new President. Lincoln has is positioned for significant gain via its relationship with governing entities in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Lincoln stands out as an economic engine in Chester County, PA. Lincoln continues of offer quality life enhancing academic opportunities to students from the mid-Atlantic region and beyond.
My commitment to you as your representative is to work tirelessly with President Allen, Trustee Chair Braswell, Ad-ministration, local governing bodies and business community, regional secondary education institutions and Lincoln alums from around the country to develop and execute a higher education agenda that keeps our school ahead of the curve and at the center of innovation.
After graduation, I attended the Northeastern University School of Law in Boston, MA. From there I moved to and lived in Anchorage, Alaska for eleven years. My professional experiences included working for the Alaska Public De-fender Agency, a State Senator, and the Governor. After an unsuccessful run for the State House of Representatives, I started a government relations firm that focused on natural resource and public lands issues at the federal level. My clients were petroleum companies interested in promoting the importance of Alaska natural resources to the “lower 48” states.
My wife Donna Williams, ‘76 and I moved to North Carolina in January of 1991. My professional experiences have included working for the Governor in the Department of Environment & Natural Resources particularly on legislative matters and the NC League of Municipalities particularly with local government officials and city and county managers. I have been a registered lobbyist in North Carolina since 2001 having focused on environmental issues, charter schools, minority business enterprise, regulatory matters and community development. Additionally, my consultancy has included trade association creation and management.
My community service activities have included serving on numerous boards and commissions: Watts Chapel Troop 253 Assistant Scout Master; NC Arboretum Board, Chair; UNC Board of Visitors, Institute for the Environment; Audubon Society, NC Chapter; NC HBCU Alumni Roundtable; the Triangle Chapter LU Alumni.
