PROBLEM Lincoln Center City (Lincoln Center or the City) is a medium-sized urban city in the state of Fordham. Approximately 75,000 people reside in Lincoln Center and the City prides itself on its diversity. Many people are attracted to Lincoln Center because of the City’s booming business environment, and the population is thus made up of various religions, cultures, and ethnicities. In the heart of Lincoln Center is Lincoln High School (Lincoln High). Like most public schools, Lincoln High is completely funded by the Lincoln Center government. All the teachers and administrators are government employees and all school buildings and property are maintained by the government. The high school includes grades nine through twelve; approximately 1,000 students are in each grade. Like Lincoln Center itself, the population of Lincoln High is extremely diverse. The students come from various cultures, speak different languages, and practice many religions. Some of the main religions represented at Lincoln High include Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. In October 2006, Lincoln High celebrated the school’s centennial. The school’s faculty, administration, and students were very excited about the centennial and had been planning centennial activities since the school year began. The celebration lasted a week and included a variety of activities, speeches, and special events. Some of the centennial activities included a carnival, school dance, casino night, and kickoff football game. While everyone had been looking forward to the planned activities, the students and administrators were most excited about the creation of a new school seal, whose design was the most talked-about centennial activity. Lincoln High had been without a school seal for one hundred years; therefore, the school’s administration and faculty decided that the centennial celebration was a perfect time to introduce a school seal. The school seal was scheduled to be presented on the final day of centennial activities. It would then be placed at the entrance to the school, in all school classrooms, and in the gymnasium.

All of the Lincoln High students were anxious to participate in creating the school seal. However, the school’s administration decided that it would be most efficient to form a School Seal Committee comprised of four students, each from a different grade. Aaron Todman, captain of the math club and a junior varsity basketball player, was appointed to be the ninth grade representative of the School Seal Committee. Jennifer Weiss, president of the language club and captain of the softball team, was chosen as the tenth grade representative.
