Area seniors named Illinois State Scholars
Congratulations to 138 area seniors who have been named Illinois State Scholars by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC).
The I-KAN Regional Office of Education celebrated their achievements at a banquet held in their honor on March 18 at the Quality Inn in Bradley. The event was co-sponsored by Kankakee Community College. Illinois State Scholar winners rank in the top ten percent of high school seniors from 749 different high schools across the state. Selection is based on SAT/ACT and class rank at the end of the junior year. For 34 years the I-KAN Regional Office of Education has been recognizing the academic accomplishments of these high achieving students.
"The Regional Office always looks forward to this event," said Dr. Gregg Murphy, Regional Superintendent of Iroquois and Kankakee County schools. "It provides a venue where we can all come together – parents, guardians and educators -- to celebrate the academic successes of our students."
