2018 Illinois State ScholarIllinois Student Assistance Commission Announces 2018-19 Illinois State Scholars

More Than 20,000 high school students recognized for exceptional academic achievement

The Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) is pleased to announce the names of the 2018-19 Illinois State Scholars. These outstanding honorees represent some of Illinois’ best and brightest, and join the other top Illinois high school students honored with the prestigious designation since it was introduced in 1958.

The 2018-19 Illinois State Scholars rank in approximately the top ten percent of high school seniors from 737 high schools across the state. Honorees are chosen based on a combination of exemplary ACT or SAT test scores and sixth semester class rank.

“On behalf of ISAC, I congratulate all of this year’s State Scholars for their exceptional work and wish them much success in their future endeavors,” said Eric Zarnikow, ISAC executive director. “Thank you also to the teachers, parents, coaches and other mentors who support our students, inspire them, and help them navigate a path to college. You make a tremendous difference not only in our students’ lives, but in improving economic prosperity and building a bright future for our state.”

While the State Scholar recognition does not include a monetary award, honorees will receive a congratulatory letter from ISAC and personalized Certificates of Achievement. This year, State Scholars can also receive a digital Illinois State Scholar badge, which can be displayed on their online profiles and social media accounts, and shared with high school counselors, prospective colleges, employers, family members and others.

Our scholars are:

John Boehle    Cecilia Fosen

Lexington School District is very proud of these students for all of their hard work!
