LuAnn S. Polk Coeducation Chair

The LuAnn S. Polk Coeducation Chair was established in 2002 by the Coeducation Committee and other members of the Groton School community to recognize Mrs. Polk’s twenty-five years of service to the school and her commitment to coeducation. Since 2007, Catherine W. Lincoln has held this Chair.

After graduating from Connecticut College in 1980, Catherine Lincoln joined Groton as a math intern, then was hired to be a full-time math teacher, coach, and dorm head. After serving as co-head of the Math Department for more than ten years, Cathy now devotes more time to crisis management and mitigation. An EMT and nationally certified firefighter, she has a master’s from Dartmouth College.
Over the years, Cathy has coached girls varsity and thirds soccer and girls varsity crew; currently, she times varsity basketball games. When she finds time, she can be found baking in her kitchen or working in her gardens. Her children, Alex ‘07 and Abigail ’10, are Groton graduates.
