Eight Rosary High School seniors have been recognized as Illinois State Scholars by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission for the 2020-21 school year, according to a news release from the school.

Rosary’s Illinois State Scholars for the Class of 2020 are: Sophie Chiesa (Sugar Grove), Ella Havertape (Sugar Grove), Liana Hirner (Aurora), Mary Ann Powers (Yorkville), Chloe Saltijeral (North Aurora), Miranda Scheel (Batavia), Lauren Seger (St. Charles) and Kaley Walsh (Lombard).

According to the news release, Illinois State Scholars are recognized for their superior academic achievement. State Scholars rank in approximately the top ten percent of high school seniors from 726 high schools across the state. Honorees are chosen based on a combination of exemplary ACT or SAT test scores and sixth semester class rank, the release stated.

The Illinois Student Assistance Commission, 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, the release stated.

“On behalf of ISAC, we congratulate the 2020-21 Illinois State Scholars,” said Eric Zarnikow, executive director of ISAC, in the news release. “In watching interviews with some of our State Scholars, I’m consistently impressed with the passion, focus, organization, and dedication of our State Scholars. It is a credit to these students--as well as to their support systems and to our schools--that so many of them are not only driven to achieve but also reflect a true love of learning and a desire to use their education to make the world a better place.”

Rosary High School is a Catholic, college-preparatory high school for young women sponsored by the Dominican Sisters of Springfield, Illinois in Aurora. For more information about Rosary visit www.rosaryhs.com or call 630-896-0831.
