Distinguished Alumni: 2017 Recipients

Ten Mundelein High School graduates were recently honored as Distinguished Alumni, chosen from a field of 35 nominees for the first annual Distinguished Alumni Award Ceremony and Banquet held Saturday, November 4, 2017 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Mundelein.

Recipients were recognized for their individual career achievements but according to Superintendent Kevin Myers, the common thread among all of them was "their Mundelein High School education and the way they have all done things outside of their professions to contribute to making this a better world."
