New Trier launched the recognition program during the 2010-2011 school year and has inducted 61 honorees since. Most of these honorees have returned to the school to share their memories in inspirational discussions with students at New Trier and at awards dinners hosted by the New Trier Educational Foundation. The 2021 dinner is scheduled for Friday, March 12 at the Hilton Orrington Hotel in Evanston – save the date!

In 2019, the honorees were: Dr. Allan Conney ’48, Sheila Hicks ’52, Judge Roy McLeese ’77, Sen. Charles Percy ’37, Dr. Alan Robin ’66, Fred Schmidt ’61, David Sellers ’56, Scott Smith ’68, and Young Alumnus Clemantine Wamariya ’08. Learn more about the 2019 Alumni Honorees.
