Lillian Lincoln graduated from F.S.N.S. in 1885. She remained at the school after completing her degree and taught geometry, drawing, and Latin. She earned her Advanced Course diploma from the school in 1890, and began working as the Principal of the Model School in 1894, where she remained until her retirement in 1924.

Miss Lincoln's additional contributions during her career included writing for the school magazine, The Farmington Normal, authoring two F.S.N.S songs, "O Mother Normal" and "Memories," and producing historical performances for the community.
