Oswego School District has announced that 105 students from Oswego East High School and 78 students from Oswego High School's graduating classes of 2019 have been recognized as Illinois State Scholars.
The Illinois Student Assitance Commission (ISAC), the state agency committed to helping make college accessible and affordable for Illinois families, confers this prestigious recognition to top Illinois high school students annually. This year, more than 21,000 honorees join the other top students who have been honored for their academic achievements since the designation was first introduced in 1958.
Illinois State Scholars represent the approximate top 10 percent of high school seniors from 757 high schools across the state. Illinois State Scholars are chosen based on a combination of exemplary ACT or SAT test scores and sixth semester class rank.
Director of High School Education Jamie Max said, "We are very proud of the many students from both Oswego East High School and Oswego High School for receiving the distinguished recognition of being an Illinois State Scholar."
"These students are not only committed and dedicated to their academic achievements, but are also great leaders and volunteers in our schools and community."
