Illinois State Scholars are recognized for their excellence in grade point average. The State Scholar Program publicly and personally identifies graduating high school seniors who possess superior academic potential. Students from nearly every high school in Illinois compete in the program. State Scholars can be found on the campuses of nearly 200 public and private institutions of higher education in Illinois. The combination of students' exemplary college entrance examination scores and record high school achievement indicate an especially high potential for success in college. To be named an Illinois State Scholar is an outstanding accomplishment that will be a highlight of the recipient’s academic record. Olympia High School is proud to announce that the class of 2020 has 15 state scholars. Jade Andris, Esther Birkey, Colby Burt, Elizabeth Davis, Danika Ford, Emily Hunter, Kishan Jayswal, Emma Kindred, Josie Litwiller, Grace Melick, Joshua Reed, Bailey Rogers, Cavit Schempp, Kaylin Simpson, Darcy Tripod were recognized this past week at the Olympia Board of Education meeting.
