Senior Studies Alumni
Message from Steve Newman
Dear Senior Studies alumni,
My 19 years teaching Senior Studies at Evanston High School is a cherished time in my life. Mostly because of the chance to meet and learn from my amazing students. Seriously.
As you might know, in 2018 I left ETHS to head up Evanston Scholars full time. Now, I dedicate my time and energy to making sure more ETHS students from low-income and/or first-generation families make it to and through college.
I know that many of you care about others and, especially, the Evanston community. That’s why I am hoping that you will make a donation to Evanston Scholars. Together, Senior Studies alum can have a direct impact on current ETHS students in need of support.
