Warhawks Remember Mr. Rufus Woods

Warhawks fondly remember Mr. Rufus Woods, a 1967 graduate of NCCHS, who passed away over Winter Break. Mr. Woods was an amazing athlete. In his senior year, he was named to the All-State Basketball Squad. He will be always remembered for hitting one of the greatest shots in IHSA basketball tournament history, when he fired an off-balance, high-arching buzzer-beater from the sidelines to beat Waukegan 43-42 in the 1966 Regional Championship game at NCCHS.

Announcing our 2022 Warhawk Lancer Scholars

We are pleased to announce the six graduates of NCCHS class of 2020 who have been selected for our first class of Warhawk Lancer Scholars.

On behalf of the board of NCPEF, we want to thank all of our generous donors who made the dream of free college a reality for our six outstanding young people.
Special thanks to our “full scholarship” donors:
– Kevin and Jami Considine
– The Terry Celba Memorial Fund
In the coming year, we hope to extend and expand this promise to the NCCHS Class of 2021.
Thank you all for your support.


Throughout February, The Lake County Tech Campus will be celebrating its Career and Technical Education program, with the Faces of CTE, by sharing the stories of students from all over Lake & McHenry County. Emely Navarro, from NCCHS, was featured as one of the Faces of CTE! Click here to see Emely’s profile. Congratulation Emely!


Students from the high school volunteered at the Northern Illinois Food Bank Mobile Pantry! They helped serve food to 22 seniors at Thompson Manor and 45 at Kukla Towers and helped deliver food at other locations for any seniors that were not able to come down while they were there. The students plan to continue volunteering throughout the year.
