Congratulations to our Illinois State Scholars!

Forreston High School Principal, Travis Heinz is pleased to announce that six students have been recognized as "2017 Illinois State Scholars".

Forreston High School is honored to recognize the following students as Illinois State Scholars from the 2017 graduating class: Ross Behrends, son of Paul and Julie Behrends, Brian Dillard, son of Dana Dillard, Bryan Edler, son of Bryan and Michele Edler, Katie Fisher, daughter of Richard and Dr. Sally Fisher, Emily Homman, daughter of Michael and Tammy Homman, and Emma Nelson, daughter of Shawn and Jennifer Nelson.

This prestigious award is given annually by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) which is recognizing 19,300 high school students from across the state as this year's State Scholars.  Illinois State Scholars possess strong academic potential and are chosen based on a combination of exemplary ACT or SAT test scores and six semester class rank.  State Scholars rand in the top ten percent of high school seniors from 765 high schools across the state.

"To be recognized in the top 10% of graduating seniors in the State of Illinois is a tribute to the students' work ethic, desire to succeed, their teachers, and the support they receive at home.  The nice thing about each of these students is that they are not only successful in the classroom.  Many of these students are leaders outside the classroom in the many extra-curricular activities they are involved as well." said Travis Heinz, Forreston High School Principal.
