WLCN 96.3 FM will provide online-only, livestream video coverage of the 2022 Lincoln Community High School Grand March held prior to prom on April 29.
The event is scheduled to start at 5 PM at the Logan County Courthouse. In case of inclement weather, the grand march will be moved to Roy S. Anderson Gymnasium at LCHS with the same start time.
“WLCN is proud to continue presenting coverage of the grand march, as it was initiated by Jeff Maxwell,” said Jim Ash, general manager of WLCN. “We are happy the tradition of the LCHS Grand March continues.”
Maxwell, known as “Jeff No. 2” to WLCN listeners, was marketing manager, morning show co-host and nighttime deejay at WLCN prior to his passing in February 2021. He organized and coordinated not only WLCN’s coverage of the event, but all aspects of the grand march the last several years it took place prior to 2021.
Kathie Williams, owner of Small Town Creations in Lincoln, serves as grand march coordinator again this year, a position she has held since organizing the 2021 event.
WLCN’s coverage will be available online only and not via the FM radio station. The live videostream can be accessed at WLCNOnline.com by clicking the Watch Live badge on the homepage. A recording of the event will be archived on the WLCN YouTube page and available for viewing in perpetuity following the event.
