Evanston Township High School was honored with the Grace Lee Boggs Certification Award at the National Summit for Courageous Conversation (NSCC) on November 7 in Austin, Texas. The award is in recognition of the practice and persistence ETHS has demonstrated in its work towards attaining racial equity.


ETHS District 202 Superintendent Marcus Campbell praised the ETHS Board members for their commitment to racial equity at their November 13, 2023 meeting. “I feel refreshed, honored, and inspired. Hopefully we can garner strength from one another and be persistent and be relentless in our efforts. And I think we can continue to make more strides.”


The NSCC convenes leaders from around the world to examine, embrace, and celebrate racial equity and social justice to help transform schools, communities, and organizations into racially equitable, social just environments that nurture the infinite potential of all people.
