Lincoln’s effort was led by career and technical education teacher Denise Magasich.

Students held a number of fundraisers and selected interim principal Bonnie Uditsky to smooch with the pig at an event held at the Abington Art Center in Jenkintown. Uditsky planted a kiss on Raines, a pot-bellied pig.

Lincoln used part of the grant to purchase Virtual Business – Personal Finance, an online simulation that teaches key personal finance concepts.

Other schools that participated in the Kiss A Pig fundraiser included Baldi Middle School and Our Lady of Calvary, St. Jerome and Stephen Decatur elementary schools. ••
