About Harvey Lincoln
Harvey Lincoln, whom we lost in 2016, was married to Achieving the Dream’s long-serving Senior Vice President Carol Lincoln. Harvey was, in every sense of the word, a true supporter of Achieving the Dream and an advocate for low-income students and students of color. Harvey was also one of Achieving the Dream’s most ardent volunteers. Achieving the Dream is honoring his legacy by providing scholarship opportunities to determined and engaged students.
