2018 ALAH Illinois State Scholars

Arthur Lovington Atwood Hammond High School Principal Steffanie Seegmiller is pleased to announce that five students from the ALAH High School graduating class of 2018 have been recognized as Illinois State Scholars.

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. This year, more than 20,000 outstanding honorees join the other top students who have been honored for their academic achievements since the designation was first introduced in 1958.  

Illinois State Scholars represent approximately the top ten percent of high school seniors from 738 high schools across the state. Illinois State Scholars possess strong academic potential and are chosen based on a combination of exemplary ACT or SAT test scores and sixth semester class rank.

Mrs. Seegmiller said, “It is exciting to have these students representing our District.  Their continued hard work, dedication and grit has paid off.  Our students are not only outstanding academically, but are also strong leaders who make our school better everyday.  We look forward to their continued work as they prepare to graduate and continue their education.  Congratulations to our 2018 Illinois State Scholars.”

The following ALAH High School students were named 2018-19 Illinois State Scholars:

Abigail Duzan, Arthur, IL

Logan Hall, Arthur, IL

Macy Hollingsworth, Arthur, IL

Colton Romine, Atwood, IL

Annika Slabaugh, Arthur, IL

“On behalf of ISAC, I want to congratulate all of this year’s State Scholars for their exceptional work and wish them much success in their future endeavors,” said Eric Zarnikow, ISAC executive director. “Thank you also to the teachers, parents, coaches and other mentors who support our students, inspire them, and help them navigate a path to college. You make a tremendous difference not only in our students’ lives, but in improving economic prosperity and building a bright future for our state.”
