PRINCETON HIGH SCHOOL ANNOUNCES 2021-2022 ILLINOIS STATE SCHOLARS
Illinois Student Assistance Commission congratulates 13 Princeton High School students for their exceptional academic achievement. ISAC, the state’s college access and financial aidagency, presents this important recogniton of academic achievement to exceptional Illinois high school students annually. This year, more than 16,640 honorees join the other top students who have been honored since the designation was first introduced in 1958.
State Scholars are usually announced in early December, however the postponement or cancellation of spring 2020 college entrance exams due to the COVID-19 pandemic delayed this year’s announcements until complete data was available.
This year’s Illinois State Scholars represent approximately the top ten percent of high school seniors from 676 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.
“In a year when students and families across the state and the nation have faced unprecedented personal and financial challenges as a result of the pandemic, we could not be more proud of the continued focus, dedication and achievements of our State Scholars,” said Eric Zarnikow, executive director of ISAC. “We also want to recognize the invaluable support of families, mentors, teachers, school counselors, and others, who are themselves dealing with the challenges of the pandemic and yet have remained dedicated to assisting students and helping them move forward on a path to meet their educational and career goals.”
Princeton High School Principal, Andy Berlinski, is pleased to announce that 13 students from
the PHS graduating class of 2021 have been recognized as Illinois State Scholars.
“Congratulations to all of this year’s recipients from Princeton High School. This designaon is an indication of each individual’s scholastic achievement and is well deserved by each”.
