Title IX celebrates 40 year anniversary: New Trier students interviewed
Several New Trier students were interviewed as part of an Associated Press article assessing the impact of the fortieth anniversary of Title IX; the landmark legislation turned 40 on Saturday. The AP story first ran in the Miami Herald and was picked up nationally. You can read the Herald story at http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/06/21/2860372/as-title-ix-turns-40-legacy-goes.html
Title IX is a portion of the Education Amendments of 1972, also identified by the name of its principal author as the Patsy T. Mink Equal Opportunity in Education Act. It states (in part) that "No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.." Go Trevians!
New Trier - Evanston Swim Meet Marks 100th Anniversary
The 2011-12 school year marks the 100th anniversary of the New Trier Boys’ Swimming and Diving program. The program was started in 1912 in conjunction with the construction of the first indoor high school swimming pool in the country. The pool was a 20 yard model that was built where the “new” gym complex sits now. In the 100 years since the inception of the program, the New Trier boy’s program has won over 888 meets on the varsity level. Since the IHSA started conducting a boy’s state championship series in 1932, the New Trier boys program has won 21 state championships and 19 state runner-up titles. The Girls Swimming and Diving program has claimed 12 titles since the inaugural girls’ state championship was conducted in 1975.
On Friday, January 20, beginning at 5:30 pm New Trier will host Evanston in the 94th dual meet between the two schools. This annual tradition started in 1918 and has taken place every year, with the exception of two years during the Great Depression of the 1930s. It is said the annual Trevian-Wildkit showdown is the longest high school dual meet rivalry in the country. Evanston Township High School also has a rich tradition in swimming and diving, having won 7 state titles of their own. New Trier leads the Wildkits in the win column with 66 to Evanston’s 26. There has been one tie. Other 100 Year Celebration events will be conducted during the weekend of January 20 and 21. There will be recognition at the dual meet, a party after the meet and a reception on Saturday night. All alumni from both schools are invited to come and watch this historic rivalry in person. Admission is free and the meet starts at 5:30 in the new (1936) New Trier pool. For a complete schedule of events celebrating the centennial, New Trier Swimming and Diving alumni should email: NTSwim100@comcast.net.
