Rivermont Collegiate is proud to announce one of our seniors, Michal Porubcin, has been recognized as a 2015 Illinois State Scholar!

The Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC), the state agency committed to helping to make college accessible and affordable for Illinois families, bestows this prestigious recognition to top Illinois high school students annually. This year, over 18,800 elite honorees join the other top state students 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, hailing from 671 different high schools across the state. Selection is based on SAT, ACT or Prairie State Achievement Exam scores, and/or class rank at the end of the junior year. High school guidance counselors work with ISAC to determine the winners.

While the prestigious recognition does not include a monetary award, recipients are encouraged to cite the award on applications for college admission. The Rivermont community is extremely proud of Michal’s accomplishments!
