U-46 students named as Illinois State Scholars
By Seth Hancock
There were 262 high school seniors from School District U-46 who rank in the top 10 percent to be named Illinois State Scholars.
That honor is based on test scores (ACT, SAT, Prairie State exam) and/or class rank after their junior year and they were named state scholars by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission.
Of the 262 scholars, 196 came from the three school within The Examiner’s coverage area: 108 from Bartlett High School, 60 from South Elgin High School and 28 from Streamwood High School.
“We applaud these students, their families and teachers for this achievement,” U-46 CEO Tony Sanders said in a press release. “We know that any student who excels at this level usually has a strong support system or mentor to encourage the kind of perseverance and diligence required to earn a spot on this list.”
