Princeton High School’s Principal, Andy Berlinski is pleased to announce that nine students from the graduating class of 2023 have been designated as Illinois State Scholars. “Congratulations to all of this year’s recipients from Princeton High School. This designation is an indication of each individual’s scholastic achievement and hard work. This designation is well deserved by each.”

The designated Princeton High School state scholars are: Alexia Bouslog, Claire Grey, Lily Keutzer, Allie Leone, Robert Nelson, Kailey Patterson, Christian Rosario, Sadie Thornton and Veronica Tirao.

The Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC), the state’s college access and financial aid agency, presents this prestigious recognition of academic achievement to exceptional Illinois high school students annually. This year, more than 16,700 honorees join the other outstanding students who have been honored since the designation was first introduced in 1958.

“On behalf of ISAC, congratulations to all of the outstanding students selected as 2023-24 Illinois State Scholars,” said ISAC Executive Director Eric Zarnikow. “Students and families faced numerous challenges over the last two years with remote learning, among other financial and personal difficulties. As we continue to recover from the pandemic, these academic achievements are a credit to the hard work and dedication of the student scholars and their families, and to the support provided by teachers, mentors, counselors, and communities in helping students meet their goals and find success as they advance on their education and
career paths.”
