Classmate Justin Niebank to Join NT Alumni Hall of Honor

The New Trier Educational Foundation selects accomplished alumni each year, and this year, our classmate Justin Niebank has been selected. He joins Bruce Dern, Sharon Percy Rockefeller and others in this year's "class." Our own Geoff Tabin was also honored in 2011.

Here's what the foundation says about Justin:

Justin Niebank, Class of 1974. Niebank has been the producer or engineer on some of the biggest selling records of all time. He won two Grammys in 2009 for his work on Taylor Swift's album Fearless, and in 2007 for Bon Jovi's album These Days. Having had several albums in the Top 40 at the same time—Fearless by Taylor Swift, Defying Gravity by Keith Urban, Unstoppable by Rascal Flatts, American Saturday Night by Brad Paisley, and Kenny Chesney’s Greatest Hits — Niebank is one of the most sought after engineers in the industry.

You are invited to attend the gala honoring Justin and the other alumni honorees.

Congratulations, Justin!

New Trier to Replace Gates Gymnasium

Goodbye Gates Gymnasium (News from New Trier)

"New Trier will break ground this December on a project to renovate and replace aging buildings on the East Side of the Winnetka Campus with new athletic and academic spaces that will expand student opportunities for generations to come without the need for a referendum. 

Following more than a year-long study, the Board approved a plan to replace the 1928 Gates Gymnasium and 1925 Boiler Plant - both inflexible spaces with high maintenance costs that do not adequately meet student needs - with a new multipurpose facility. The project is scheduled to be completed by the opening of the 2023-2024 school year and will include a new multipurpose competition gym, a 6-lane indoor track, a dozen new classroom spaces, new auxiliary gyms, new strength and conditioning facilities, and a new climbing wall and high ropes course. Design elements from the Gates Gymnasium, such as the distinctive barrel-shaped roof, will be incorporated into the new facility as a nod to the gymnasium’s illustrious history. 

All alumni are invited to attend the following events at the Gates Gymnasium as we commemorate the historic space through a series called A December To Remember:

December 4, 2021 at 12 p.m. -- Open House and Commemoration Event 
New Trier High School will host a Commemoration Ceremony in the Stage Gym on Saturday, Dec. 4 at 12 p.m. before the girls varsity basketball game. Alumni and guests are invited to stay for the girls and boys varsity basketball games beginning at 12:30 p.m. Attendees can also tour the entire Winnetka Campus, which was renovated on the west side in 2017, and view drawings of the new construction.

December 12, 2021 at 3 p.m. -- New Trier Winter Music Festival
The New Trier Music Department’s annual concert dates back to 1918 and will be held in the Gates Gymnasium one last time on Sunday, Dec. 12. We are excited to feature New Trier’s talented bands, orchestras, and choirs in this wonderful event. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, capacity may be limited to performers and their families, but we will livestream the event for the entire community. Stay tuned for more information.

December 16, 2021 at 5:45 p.m. -- Athletic Hall of Honor Induction and Alumni Night
The New Trier High School Athletic Department will induct its third class into the Athletic Department Hall of Honor on Thursday, Dec. 16, recognizing Ben Almaguer, Gary Groh, Ron Klein, and Deborah Ofcky for their significant contributions to New Trier Athletics. The inductees will be honored in the Gates Gymnasium in between the girls (5:45 p.m.) and boys varsity basketball games (7:30 p.m.) against Evanston High School, which will be the last official games played in the space.

NTE Class of 1974 Reunion was on Saturday October 19, 2019 

A tour of the new New Trier (pictured below) was included.

New Trier has undergone a massive renovation!  The result is mind-blowing for those of us who remember the old days.  This picture is an atrium space.  But most of the old stuff remains intact.  It's just been added to.  In place of the TechArts and Music Building is a new library, a new cafeteria (!!), two new performance spaces, technical classrooms that can shape-shift as needs change, and "gathering places" for students.  It's quite shocking.

Here's a photo taken during reconstruction. You are looking at what now faces the "Girls' Athletic Field" (north side of building).  Go to for more info and to purchase your very own brick from the old parts that are being replaced.


Do you have photos from our time at New Trier?  Let's share them.   If you have photos, PLEASE POST THEM HERE!  Two options: 1) Post them to your profile page (as an example - Check out Jerry Braun's profile); or 2) create a gallery (accessible via the "Photo Gallerys" link in the top navigation bar). If you would like to create a gallery, Contact Randy Pickard at and he will set you up with the permissions needed to create to gallery.

Our 45th reunion was a ton of fun. Thanks to all that came to the events, particularly those that traveled to make it!  For photos from the weekend, click on the Photo Galleries link on the navigation bar at the top of the webpage.
