The new mural features members of the Class of 2018, whose academic and athletic achievements at LFHS earned them recognition as finalists and recipients of significant Honors Night awards last spring.

This year's honorees--reading from left to right--are:
Will Steck, Brett Chody, John Deering, Drew Arnson, Olivia Douglass, Quinn Dailey, Catherine Nicholson, Landon Edwards, Jessia Pasquesi, Emma Milburn, Jack Mislinski, Audrey Kaus, Caleb Durbin, Trisha Bhagat, and Amelia Field.

Net Gain 2017 was Lake Forest's response to Rick Telander's five-part profile on the Orr Academy High School basketball team. A fundraiser was created to support the Orr basketball program and to create a cultural exchange to positively impact young men from both Orr Academy High School and Lake Forest High Schools. That initial fundraiser raised over $33,000.

As a result of the success of Net Gain 2017, Joe Dondanville, who produced the outstanding documentary Gamechangers, which tells the extraordinary story of the New Trier High School/Marshall Metropolitan High School basketball games in 1965 and 1966, contacted Lake Forest High School about developing a partnership to create a follow-up event.

As a result of this partnership, Net Gain 2018 featured four high school basketball teams in two games:

1. Orr Academy High School (CPS) vs. Lake Forest High School
2. Marshall Metropolitan High School (CPS) vs. New Trier High School

The fundraiser concluded with an after-game barbecue with teams, coaches, sponsors and volunteers.

Much more information about this fundraising project and WGN-TV's coverage of it (under "gallery" tab) can be found here.
