Teutopolis High School Principal Greg Beck is pleased to announce that 11 Teutopolis High School students from the graduating class of 2016 have been recognized as Illinois State Scholars.
The Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC), the state agency committed to helping make college accessible and affordable for Illinois families, bestows this prestigious recognition to top Illinois high school students annually.
This year, nearly 19,000 elite honorees join the other top state students honored for their academic achievements since the designation was first introduced in 1958.
The following students were named 2016-2017 Illinois State Scholars – Audra Breer, Joseph Esker, Allison Deters, Abigail Hemmen, Cali Johnson, Trent Mette, Lauren Ozenkoski, Maci Rieman, Carol Schumacher, Lauren Siemer and Maria Vonderheide.
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. State Scholars rank in approximately the top ten percent of high school seniors, representing 652 high schools across the state.
