Alumni Donation Expands Opportunities Students


Alumni Donation: CHSD117

The start of the 2022-2023 school year will mark the first time D117 students will have direct access to a devoted College and Career Navigator who is working in the CLC College and Career Center, focused on supporting our students’ post secondary educational and professional pursuits. The position was made possible through a generous donation from ACHS (1975) and College of Lake County Alum, Mr. Michael Witt. He wanted to give back to the communities that supported his own personal development and growth. The donation of $150,000 will fund a devoted Career Navigator to students at ACHS and LCHS for two full years. The Career Navigator will work in both buildings to support students pursuing an Associate’s Degree. District 117 wants to again thank Mr. Witt for his contribution and example of giving back to the communities that helped shape his character and career.
