Kankakee and Iroquois County students named Illinois State Scholars


A total of 115 Kankakee and Iroquois County high school seniors were designated as 2021-22 Illinois State Scholars by the Illinois Students Assistance Commission (ISAC).

Illinois State Scholars rank in the top ten percent of high school seniors from hundreds of high schools across the state. Selection is based on academic performance, standardized test scores and GPA.

In mid-April, congratulatory letters from ISAC were mailed to Scholars and a Certificate of Achievement for each Scholar was provided to individual high schools.

The I-KAN Regional Office of Education #32 congratulates these high achieving students for their academic accomplishments.

“The Illinois State Scholars have worked hard for this moment and we couldn’t be more proud of them,” said I-KAN Regional Office of Education Superintendent Dr. Gregg Murphy. “They have all reached an impressive goal. Their hard work and determination have paid off.”
