Illinois State Scholars represent approximately the top ten percent of high school seniors from 738 high schools across the state. Illinois State Scholars possess strong academic potential and are chosen based on a combination of exemplary ACT or SAT test scores and sixth semester class rank.
The following UHS students were named 2018-19 Illinois State Scholars: Georgia Graham, Amanda Schrader, Amber Shupe, and Cordin Tallcott.
On behalf of CUSD 4, I want to congratulate all of this year’s State Scholars for their exceptional work and wish them much success in their future endeavors.. Thank you also to the teachers, parents, coaches and other mentors who support our students, inspire them, and help them navigate a path to college. You make a tremendous difference not only in our students’ lives, but in improving economic prosperity and building a bright future for our state.
