Clermont Elementary School officially closed Thursday, June 1st with an unveiling of the Lincoln Park Education Center sign. The school will be converted to the Lincoln Park Education Center, a name that School Board members approved in homage to “The Lincoln Park School,” which educated African American children in Clermont before racial integration.

Led by Superintendent Diane Kornegay and School Board Chairman Marc Dodd, plans for the center were developed from the vision of the Lincoln Park South Lake Alliance in partnership with Lake Technical College (LTC) and Lake-Sumter State College (LSSC).
It will provide a student-centered, rigorous program in a blended learning environment, mixing the flexibility of an online curriculum with the structure and guidance of a traditional classroom experience.

Projected to open in August 2024, the center will offer a flexible-day high school program, dual-enrollment career programs, and opportunities for students to earn college credit by taking on-site LTC and LSSC courses. It is also expected to offer community education programs that teach specific workforce skills and provide opportunities for certifications to help address the job demands of the community.

“We know that for some students, a traditional high school schedule is not the best option,” Kornegay said. “A flexible schedule will allow them to work and help their families while working toward their personal goals.”

The flexible-day high school program will offer face-to-face instruction, one-on-one and small-group interventions, and an 18-credit diploma program. Elective courses, workforce training through dual enrollment, mentoring, and other support services would be included.

Students would attend classes Mondays through Thursdays from August through June, with Fridays reserved for parent or student meetings with teachers. Students could choose to attend during the early session, 7:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., or during the late session, 2-7 p.m.

Lake Tech's potential offerings include computer literacy courses, adult education programming, introduction to culinary or construction, and apprenticeship programs.

Early plans from LSSC include college and career counseling for high school students and adults. LSSC is exploring the possibility of offering students the opportunity to earn a two-year associate degree in construction management at the center. Students would learn about building science, project management, and the professional practices needed for a career in residential or commercial construction.

We are grateful for our partnership with Lake County School Board, Lake Tech College, and Lake Sumter State College. We also Thank Duke Energy, 712 Marketing Solutions, and all the organizations for their support.

We are excited about these new beginnings for our Community, the City of Clermont, and South Lake County.

Black History Facts in Clermont
Lincoln Park School: the first Black/African American school before integration

James S. Townsend Sr organized the first Negro school in 1902. The schoolhouse was a one-room building, on a hill, half way between Clermont and Minneola. The first teacher was George DeVaughn, brother to Mrs. Sally Townsend. He earned a salary of $15. per month for a three month school term, January 15th through April 15th. The 1st school term started with nine children. The school moved to a home owned by the Townsend family on Chestnut Street in 1906 with thirteen children attending that term.
Lincoln Park began as the Clermont Negro School. Citizens donated the labor to build a three-room school for grades 1 through 8 on Fifth Street just north of Hwy 50 on Lake Dot. It operated from four to six month terms. In 1932 the school term was extended to eight months and then 9 months in 1937. The Fifth Street School was moved to Lincoln Park in 1937.
The three-room building burned and was replaced with a larger building. By 1960 Lincoln Park had expanded and was able to house a high school. Mr. William N. McKinney, for whom the the park at Bloxam and East Desoto is named, was the first Principal of the high school. Lincoln Park provided a lunchroom program as well as head start. The Head Start program was 75% federally funded with Mrs. Dorothy McGriff as head of the program. In 1970, full integration was completed and Lincoln Park became Clermont Middle School.

CLERMONT – Clermont Elementary School is closing in June and will be converted to the Lincoln Park Education Center, a name that School Board members approved last week in homage to The Lincoln Park School, which educated African American children in Clermont before racial integration.

Led by Superintendent Diane Kornegay and School Board Chairman Marc Dodd, plans for the center were developed from the vision of the Lincoln Park South Lake Alliance in partnership with Lake Technical College and Lake-Sumter State College (LSSC). It will provide a student-centered, rigorous program in a blended learning environment, mixing the flexibility of an online curriculum with the structure and guidance of a traditional classroom experience.

Projected to open in August 2024, the center will offer a flexible-day high school program along with dual-enrollment career programs and opportunities for students to earn college credit by taking Lake Tech and LSSC courses on-site. It is also expected to offer community education programs that teach specific workforce skills and provide opportunities for certifications to help address the job demands of the community.

“We know that for some students, a traditional high school schedule is not the best option,” Kornegay said. “A flexible schedule will give them the opportunity to work and help their families while still working toward their personal goals.”

The flexible-day high school program will offer face-to-face instruction, one-on-one and small-group interventions, and an 18-credit diploma program. Elective courses, workforce training through dual enrollment, mentoring and other support services would be included. Students would attend classes Mondays through Thursdays from August through June, with Fridays reserved for parent or student meetings with teachers. Students could choose to attend during the early session, 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., or during the late session, 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Potential offerings from Lake Tech include courses in computer literacy, adult education programming, introduction to culinary or construction along with apprenticeship programs.

Early plans from LSSC include college and career counseling for high school students and adults. Officials there are exploring the possibility of offering students the opportunity to earn a two-year associate’s degree in construction management at the center. Students would learn about building science, project management and the professional practices needed for a career in residential or commercial construction.

LPSLA would like to give a special thank you to Duke Energy, who funded a $10,000 grant to the Lincoln Park South Lake Alliance to advocate for workforce training and youth enrichment programs in the South Lake community.

This month Lincoln Park South Lake Alliance would like to highlight Shannon Herrera, secretary of the LPSLA and the executive director of find feed restore.
During her MBA program, she specialized in Marketing and The Customer-Driven Organization (otherwise known as Servant Leadership), not realizing that it would draw her into an exciting nonprofit career journey in healthcare, education, youth enrichment, and social services. Through that career, Shannon has developed as a networker connecting people to passions, donors to life-changing programs, and the business community to focus on areas of missional importance. She sees how each nonprofit has to have a strategy incorporating grants, annual giving, major gifts, events when appropriate, and also planned giving. Shannon loves seeing all this work together to build transformational relationships that sustain the test of time.

Thank you, Shannon, for always putting your best forward every day!
