The 2021 Rotary Run Charity Classic Oct. 3 had more than 825 registered runners and raised more than $100,000, with donations still coming in.

Proceeds will be donated to The Community House, Rotary Club of Hinsdale Foundation, District 181 Foundation, Hinsdale Hospital Foundation and Ray Graham Association. Hinsdale Middle School and Oak School received the Mr. K and Mrs. B Rotary Run trophies, respectively, for having the most registered participants based on school population. The Monroe School mascot, Miles the Mustang, galloped across the finish line first in the D181 mascot race.


Nazareth Academy junior Brady Linn of Hinsdale was named to the 2021 Homecoming Court during an Oct. 8 pep rally at the LaGrange Park school.

John Naisbitt, a social studies teacher and coach at Hinsdale Central, has earned an Outstanding Educator Award from the University of Chicago.

For more than three decades, first-year students entering the university have nominated individuals who have helped them “along the path toward intellectual growth” for this award. Naisbitt is among the educators who are being recognized this year for the significant role they play in their students’ education and the positive impact they have on the lives of those they teach. A virtual celebration for this year’s winners will be held at 7 p.m. Oct. 25.
