Sixteen seniors from Rosary High School in Aurora are being recognized by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission as Illinois State Scholars.

Illinois State Scholars are chosen based on a combination of high SAT or ACT scores and sixth semester class rank. Across the state, about ten percent of seniors from 765 high schools receive the honor. At Rosary, 29 percent of the senior Class of 2019 are state scholars.

Rosary's Illinois State Scholars include: Kathryn Mueller and Louisa Surtz from Batavia; Melanie Meyer from Geneva; Brooklynn Decore, Elizabeth Gaugel and Grace Shares from St. Charles; and Alaina Pyle and Allison Tippett from Sugar Grove.

"In this 60th year of the Illinois State Scholar Program, we are proud to announce another class of outstanding students what will lead us into the future," said Eric Zarnikow, executive director of ISAC, in a news release.

"We congratulate these scholars on their hard work and accomplishments. Congratulations also and thank you to the families, principals, teachers, counselors, coaches, mentors, and all of the other individuals who not only help our students find the path that will allow them to flourish, but also support them every step of the way."

The Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC), the state agency committed to helping to make college accessible and affordable for Illinois families, confers this prestigious recognition to top Illinois high school students annually.
