York Athletic Director Named Illinois Athletic Director of the Year

by Thomas Makinney


York High School has a reputation not only for academic excellence but athletic excellence as well. And the Illinois Athletic Directors Association agrees, naming Athletic Director and Assistant Principal for Athletics Rob Wagner as its Class 3A and 4A Division 3 Athletic Director of the Year. He will receive the award and recognition at the IADA State Conference on Saturday, May 5 in East Peoria.

As athletic director, Wagner oversees the athletic programs at York, working closely with the coaches and overseeing financial, practical, and legal matters relating to the school’s teams as well as ensuring that athletes adhere to ethical standards.

Wagner has been at York High School for 15 years and is a familiar face to many, having served in a variety of roles during his tenure. He has been the athletic director for eight years. His other positions at the school include: assistant principal for finance and student activities (2011-2014), assistant principal for student services (2009-2011), and dean of students (2002-2005). He has served as assistant principal for athletics since 2014 and served a prior term as athletic director (2005-2009). He has also been a football and track coach at York.

Congratulations to Rob and to all the staff, coaches, and students at York who make awards and accolades like this possible! We’re proud of the amazing educational and athletic resources in our city.

York AS.IS. Club to Celebrate A Night of Noise

by Thomas Makinney

It will be a night of acceptance and a celebration of diversity on April 27 when York High School’s AS.IS. club hosts A Night of Noise on April 27 at the high school.

AS.IS. stands for “accepting sexual orientation at school” and is the gay-straight alliance (GSA) at York. Their mission is to spread the message of acceptance through the school and community, working to build tolerance and respect, combat bigotry, and reduce homophobic behavior.

The group is open to all students and is comprised of like-minded individuals who want everyone to feel comfortable and included. The club has been active at York for 17 years.

Organizers have invited other gay-straight alliance clubs at nearby high schools to the evening’s festivities. Last year, participating high schools included Argo, Lyons Township, Leyden, and Glenbard West. More than 100 students turned up and attendance is expected to be larger this year.

The evening will include icebreaker activities, a photo booth, dancing, karaoke, and a speaker. The event is billed as an evening of “total acceptance,” something many students still find rare either in school, the community, or at home.

@Properties and The Gracik-Makinney Group are honored to be donating our “Share the Love” rainbow magnets to hand out to all attendees.

If you want to find out more about how diversity and acceptance are important values in our community, call us at (630) 441-5570 or reach out through our website, www.gmregroup.com.

Elmhurst Schools Ranked One of Best in Illinois

by Thomas Makinney

Elmhurst District 205 continues to rack up the accolades, ranking number six on a recent survey of top 100 districts in Illinois. 

The survey collected date from 9,577 school districts and looked at student performance (math and reading test scores) from the Center for Education Policy Analysis, dropout rates and school funding per the National Center for Education Statistics, and area poverty rates from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Chicago area suburbs consistently boast some of the best public school districts in the country, and this report cites our area schools’ consistent academic achievement, generous funding, superb athletic programs, and extensive extracurricular activities. 

The top ranked school district was Naperville District 203 followed by Morton District 709 and Wauconda District 118. Just ahead of Elmhurst was Barrington District 220 with Indian Prairie District 204 coming in number seven.

The survey was conducted by backgroundchecks.org, which helps consumers find public records and conduct background checks.

Elmhurst’s great schools are one of the reasons that living here is such a good investment. To learn more about the schools or the community, give us a call at (630) 441-5570 or visit us at www.gmregroup.com.

Elmhurst Metra Station Garners More Grants

by Thomas Makinney

While downtown Elmhurst continues to boom and attract a wealth of restaurants, pubs, entertainment options, and outdoor space, the train station—the first structure that many see when entering the city—is deeply out of step.

That’s all about the change. The Elmhurst Metra station is one step closer to being fully funded prior to a complete overhaul expected to begin in summer 2019.

The city recently secured a $2.4 million grant from the Illinois Commerce Commission. This is in addition to the $10 million awarded last October by the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for planning. In addition, the DuPage Mayor and Managers Conference has also pledged another $2 million through a separate federal funding program.

The project is expected to cost around $18 million and will replace or improve the current structure, last updated in the 1980s. Plans include a full facelift and facility overhaul. There will be new inbound and outbound stations with new waiting areas/warming shelters, a new pedestrian tunnel at York St. that is ADA compliant, drop-off lanes for buses and vehicles, increased bike parking, and improved pedestrian crossing and sidewalks.

A large clock tower will be erected on the north side of the tracks, providing a welcoming landmark to the city.

Many residents feel that the outdated facility doesn’t accurately reflect the city’s image while officials recognize that it is not prepared for the expected 30% uptick of riders in the next 20 years, as commuters are predicted to begin switching from car travel to mass transit.

Currently, the Elmhurst station is the busiest stop on the Union Pacific West line and the seventh busiest station out of the Metra’s 236 stations. It has more than 2,300 weekday riders.

The station’s overhaul will allow for better accessibility and address safety issues.

Chicago firm CDM Smith was hired for the project in 2016 and designed the proposed improvements. The next step is for the city to reach out to engineers for a second phase of studies for the project. That process will include a series of public meetings.

At The Gracik-Makinney Group, we love seeing the constant flow of improvements to our city. For more information about living here and loving it, call us at (630) 441-5570 or reach out through our website, www.gmregroup.com.
