Northbrook Jr. High Reps Accept Blue Ribbon Award In Washington, D.C.


NORTHBROOK, IL — Northbrook Junior High School was well-represented last week in Washington, D.C. Principal Dr. Scott Meek, District 28 Superintendent Dr. Jason Pearson and teacher representative Wendy Concklin accepted the 2023 National Blue Ribbon School award for the school on Nov. 17.

According to district officials, NJH was among 353 schools nationwide and 20 schools in Illinois to receive the award, based on the school’s overall academic performance, this year. NJH also won the award in 1992. A celebration on Dec. 1 is being planned.

“Going to Washington, DC for the Blue Ribbon Award ceremony was truly special,” Meek said. “It was great spending time with educators from across the country who were also being recognized. There was so much positive energy and enthusiasm in the building as everyone was celebrating their success and clearly were proud of their own school’s accomplishments.

National Blue Ribbon Schools serve as models of effective and innovative school practices for state and district educators and other schools throughout the nation, according to the U.S. Department of Education.

Pearson, who also made the trip to Washington, D.C. last year to accept the Blue Ribbon Award for Westmoor School, said the achievement is a reflection on the District 28 community.

Glenbrook North High School also received the 2023 National Blue Ribbon. Westmoor School received the award in 2022 and Greenbriar School received the award in 2013.
