The Lincoln High School yearbook, the Ahdawagam, first appeared in 1913 and has been published ever since. Archived copies date to 1915, when the Grand Rapids High School emblem was the intertwined “GR” designed by Grim Natwick, an alumni of the school. Since then the Ahdawagam has recorded the students, teachers, activities, athletics, and changes of the Wisconsin Rapids School District and community.
Besides recording changes of the community, the Ahdawagam has undergone many changes itself. Originally a cut-and-paste production, printed locally, it has transformed to online production with digital photography that is published by Jostens Publishing. Most recently, the book has won awards from the Chippewa Valley School Press Association and been featured in the Jostens Look Book for excellence in cover design. It is entirely student produced (except for some photography) in a year-long class.
A few copies of previous yearbooks remain and are being offered for sale for $10. Please contact the adviser by clicking here. Proceeds from the sale will benefit current and future staff members through educational opportunities.
