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 25 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. She holds the LuAnn S. Polk Coeducation Chair.
Cathy continues to serve as the Fifth Form advisor, working with the form’s leaders on fundraising and Spring Fling, an all-school field day of inter-dorm games. Over the years, Cathy has coached girls varsity and thirds soccer and girls varsity crew; currently, she times varsity basketball games.
Cathy is an EMT and a nationally certified firefighter for the Town of Groton, as well as mother to Alex ‘07 and Abigail ’10. She has a master’s from Dartmouth College. When she finds time, she can be found baking in her kitchen or working in her gardens.
