More Than 200 District U-46 Seniors Named Illinois State Scholars
Jan. 6, 2020
In recognition of their academic performance, more than 200 seniors at School District U-46’s five comprehensive high schools have been designated as Illinois State Scholars. The award reflects approximately the top 10 percent of academic achievers among the Class of 2020 at each participating high school.
A total of 202 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 17,000 students from 726 schools across the state who earned the designation this year, the 61st for the State Scholar program. The scholars are selected based on their ACT and SAT exams and sixth semester class rank.
“We are so incredibly proud of our students for this achievement,” said Lela Majstorovic, Assistant Superintendent for Secondary Schools. “Their hard work and dedication has earned them the recognition they deserve. We are grateful to our parents, schools, and communities for supporting them along their journey.”
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.
