The Niles West Class of 2015, as a class gift, has dedicated a wall in honor of West graduates who have gone on to serve in the United States Armed Forces. Our goal is to commemorate past, present, and future graduates for their service. We also hope it will serve as a reminder to current students to be appreciative of those who protect our country. If you know of alumni who have served in any branch of the military, active or reserves, please complete the Wall of Honor form. Thank you!
