Listen To The Replay Of Stevenson’s Safety Mitigation Webinar

On Monday night, Stevenson hosted a webinar with Superintendent Eric Twadell and Principal Troy Gobble to update our entire community about safety mitigations on campus.

A Coaching Honor 40 Years In The Making: Tom Habley

Between boys and girls soccer and boys and girls basketball, Tom Habley put together a coaching career at Stevenson that spanned more than four decades.

Stevenson will celebrate that loyalty and longevity tonight in honoring Habley, a Class of 2021 inductee into the Lake County Hall of Fame, at halftime of the boys soccer game against North Suburban Conference rival Mundelein, which is slated for a 7 p.m. start in the stadium.

Now retired, Habley started the boys soccer team in 1977 and coached for six years, leading the Patriots to 53 wins and a regional title in 1982. He then began the girls soccer program in 1983 and was the head coach for six years, collecting 41 wins along the way. He also coached various levels of boys and girls basketball.

Habley was a teacher and clinical counselor at Stevenson until his retirement and was the brother of the late Dave Habley, Stevenson’s first band director.

Tonight’s soccer game has also been designated as “Night at the Beach,” and fans are encouraged to wear their beach attire as they cheer on the Patriots.
