District U-46 Seniors Named State Scholars
Dec. 6, 2018
ELGIN – In recognition of their academic performance, nearly 280 seniors at the five District U-46 high schools have been designated as Illinois State Scholars. The award reflects the top 10 percent of academic achievers among the Class of 2019 at each participating high school.
A total of 277 students at Elgin, Bartlett, Larkin, South Elgin, and Streamwood high schools recently received notification of the honor from the Illinois Student Assistance Commission, the state program that administers the scholar program and works to make college more affordable through financial aid planning.
The U-46 honorees were among more than 21,000 students from 757 schools across the state who earned the designation this year, the 60th for the State Scholar program.
“Congratulations to our Illinois State Scholars,” said CEO Tony Sanders. “We are proud of their accomplishments in our schools and cannot wait to see their future successes.”
State Scholars receive a congratulatory letter and a certificate of achievement. They also receive a digital “badge” noting their award that can be displayed on social media platforms or can be shared through online profiles with friends and family as well as prospective colleges or employers.
The 2019 State Scholars from District U-46 high schools are listed below by high school:
Bartlett High School
