2022 Ribbon Cutting & Dedication Ceremony: Ronald C. Dunlap Elementary
Ribbon Cutting & Dedication Ceremony at Ronald C. Dunlap Elementary School!
The Appleton Area School District will be hosting a Dedication Ceremony for Ronald C. Dunlap Elementary - Home of the Lincoln Lions, on Monday, August 22, 2022, 5:00 p.m., in Appleton, Wisconsin. The event will be held on the front lawn of Dunlap Elementary, 1000 N. Mason Street, Appleton, Wisconsin 54914.
The journey to this destination began in February of 2020 when a committee was formed to discuss how to honor Ronald C. Dunlap’s legacy after his passing in October of 2019. This committee included community members, former students, school families, and staff.
Mr. Dunlap paved the way for diversity and inclusion initiatives in our school district, community, and state. The committee strongly believed that renaming Lincoln Elementary School to the Ronald C. Dunlap Elementary School – Home of the Lincoln Lions, would honor a great person who will continue to be respected as an outstanding educator, community leader, volunteer, mentor, and role model. Future generations of students, educators, families and community members will remember Mr. Dunlap for his message of dignity and respect that will live on in Ronald C. Dunlap Elementary School.
