District 228 Proud of Its 70 Illinois State Scholars

70 Bremen High School District 228 students from Bremen High School, Tinley Park High School, Hillcrest High School, and Oak Forest High School are being recognized by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) as 2019-2020 Illinois State Scholars.

ISAC is the state agency committed to helping make college accessible and affordable for Illinois families, it bestows this prestigious recognition to top Illinois high school students annually.

"In this 60th year of the Illinois State Scholar Program, we are proud to announce another class of outstanding students that will lead us into the future," says Eric Zarnikow, Executive Director of ISAC. "We congratulate these Scholars on their hard work and accomplishments. Congratulations also and thank you to the families, principals, teachers, counselors, coaches, mentors, and all of the other individuals who not only help our students find the path that will allow them to flourish, but also support them every step of the way."

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

Students chosen to be Illinois State Scholars represent approximately the top ten percent of high school seniors from 757 schools. Scholars possess strong academic potential and are chosen based on ACT/SAT test scores and class rank.
