It is with considerable enthusiasm that we nominate Bill Childs for the “Champions for Children’s Award”! Bill has been a long-time supporter of Lincoln Street School through his efforts in establishing and supporting the “Bette Child’s Reading Corner” in our library, in memory of his late wife, Bette, who taught at Lincoln Street School for many years. For over ten years, Bill has donated funds to allow our librarian the opportunity to purchase current “best literature” children’s books which are placed in this special “reading corner” for access by our students. This very popular area contains hundreds of outstanding books highlighted by both beautiful illustrations and high quality literature. Our school continues to be incredibly fortunate to be the recipient of Bill Child’s exceptional kindness and generosity!

Additionally, as a local artist, Bill Childs has been an active supporter of Lincoln Street School’s Art Program for many years. More specifically, Bill has worked diligently in support of Exeter’s annual “Student Art Show” held each March. Students from Lincoln Street School, as well as from schools throughout SAU-16 and the broader Exeter school community, have the opportunity to display their artwork at the Exeter Town Hall. Bill has been a key and active proponent of this very special program. Our school has also been extremely fortunate to have had Bill Childs serve as our “visiting artist” on two occasions during our “Integrated Arts Night”. At both events Bill displayed several of his beautiful paintings and shared his extensive passion for his profession with our students, parents and staff.

Finally, as both a former parent and grandparent at Lincoln Street School, Bill Childs has always made himself available to assist his children and grandchildren as well as their teachers with numerous Art-related projects. Bill has for many years, given of his time, talent and treasure to support the Arts at Lincoln Street School and is truly a “Champion for Children”.
