Evanston Twp High School
Class Of 1964
Class of 1964 presents
permanent legacy gift
to Students of ETHS!
Our class gift --
the Award in History and Social Science
in Honor of Jack Rakove --
will be bestowed every year
This is the first communal gift from our class to the school, and it will benefit ETHS students for years to come.
Special thanks to those who proposed the idea; to the classmates who jumped aboard early and the ones who came on later; to those who volunteered time to strategize the campaign and engineer the logistics; to class members who directly asked friends to pitch in; to our hardworking webmasters; to the alumni office for bookkeeping help; to the generous donor who fortified us by anonymously matching gifts during the final days of 2016, and to Jack Rakove and the history department for formulating criteria for the prize.
Collectively, we raised $34,082!
The winning of the drawing for an inscribed copy of “Revolutionaries” by Jack Rakove is:
