Moline High School Students Named as Illinois State Scholars
The Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) named 50 Moline High School students as 2017 Illinois State Scholars. The students were recognized at a ceremony on December 13 at Moline High School. The State Scholar program recognizes Illinois high school students for outstanding academic achievement.
ISAC Executive Director Eric Zarnikow, whose agency has overseen the Illinois State Scholars program since 1958, said, “Students have a lot to contend with as they move through high school—from increased testing to extracurricular activities to highly competitive college admissions. Kudos to these students and also to the teachers, parents, coaches and other mentors who contributed to their success and helped them navigate a path towards college and career success.”
While the recognition does not provide a monetary award, recipients are encouraged to cite the award on applications for college admission and scholarships in addition to completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine eligibility for federal and state aid.
