Scout Nation Mission Statement

The mission of Scout Nation is to create a positive atmosphere and establish school unity by supporting the teams and clubs of Lake Forest High School. Scout Nation will lead the charge with cheering for our teams' successes while following good sportsmanship guidelines.


During half-time of the Varsity Football exciting season-opening 10-7 victory over Antioch, the 2019 Images of Excellence was presented. The mural is a celebration of excellence at Lake Forest High School. While its focus is athletics, the mural is not intended to celebrate athletic achievement alone.

Wall of Excellence unveiled at season-opening football game vs Antioch

The vision for the mural is to use athletics as a backdrop to highlight the virtues, values and qualities LFHS seeks to instill and develop in our youth, and to honor LFHS students who have consistently displayed these attributes during their careers at Lake Forest High School, both on and off the field of play. The virtues written on the mural include: Acceptance, Character, Commitment, Courage, Empathy, Honor, Integrity, Leadership, Passion, Respect, Responsibility, Scholarship, Spirit, Sportsmanship, and Success.

The images depicted this year consist of nine student-athletes who are winners and finalists of the Boosters Outstanding Senior Athlete Award, recipients of the Senior Scholar-Athlete Award, Bill Rawson Memorial Award, Gayla Clemons Athletic Award, Matt Coutu Award and Philip Sousa Band Award are depicted on the Wall, as are the LFHS Student Council President and LFHS Student Council Senior Class President.

Congratulations to this year's honorees (listed in alphabetical order):  Ashley Alghini, Emily Asmussen, Ryan Cekay, Sarah Considine,  Danny Fisher, Jake Fisher, Tommy Hanson, Leland Keller, Kevin Lamp, Claire Mahoney, JD O'Keane, Ellie Pearson, Katie Pierce, Addie Sidles, Oleksyi Vyshyvanyuk.  You have represented your school and our community well.

The Wall of Excellence came into existence in 2010 through the efforts of the LFHS Boosters, Brian Vandenberg's vision and their Corporate Sponsor NorthShore University HealthSystem, whose funding offsets costs associated with the mural.  This collaboration continues to this day.
