11 named State Scholars at GCMS High School

GIBSON CITY — Eleven seniors at Gibson City-Melvin-Sibley High School have been recognized as Illinois State Scholars.

Earning the recognition were Remi Astronomo, Joshua Bleich, Darrin Brown, Gabrielle Dammkoehler, Nathan Garard, Allie Heavilin, Christopher Hood, Matthew Hunt, Megan Moody, Claire Retherford and Tyler Ricks.

Each year since 1958, the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) has conferred Illinois State Scholar recognition to top Illinois high school students. This year, there were more than 21,000 honorees.

Illinois State Scholars represent approximately the top 10 percent of high school seniors from 757 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.

While the State Scholar recognition does not include a monetary prize, honorees will receive a congratulatory letter from ISAC and a personalized certificate of achievement. Honorees can also download a digital Illinois State Scholar badge that can be displayed on their online profiles and social media platforms, and shared with high school counselors, prospective colleges, employers, family members and others.

A complete list of the 2019-20 Illinois State Scholars can be found on ISAC’s website.
