To celebrate its 50th anniversary, Maine South High School recently inducted three of its most distinguished graduates, a group that included former first lady and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, into a newly dedicated wall of honor.
The festivities celebrating the Park Ridge school's 50th year, which kicked off on homecoming week, were highlighted by the wall of fame inductees being honored late last month at a dinner at the Park Ridge County Club.
While Clinton couldn't appear, fellow inductees Patricia Callahan and Nathan Hultman attended the dinner, which was hosted by Maine South High School and Maine Township District 207's Educational Foundation.
Clinton, who sent a video greeting. was represented at the event by Betsy Ebeling, her longtime friend and an Arlington Heights resident.
A member of Maine South's first graduating class of 1965 and also a former presidential candidate, Clinton was honored for "her long and considerable service to the country and her work protecting children and women's rights," according to a District 207 release.
