Forreston High School is honored to recognize the following students as Illinois State Scholars from the 2023 graduating class: Brooke Boettner daughter of Nathan and Amanda Boettner, Owen Greenfield son of Jeff and Erin Greenfield, Johnathen Kobler son of Jason and Debbie Kobler, Alexander Milnes son of Jeremy and Allison Milnes, and Brock Smith son of Brent and Sheri Smith.

This prestigious award is given annually by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) which is recognizing 16,770 high school students from 690 high schools 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. 

“To be recognized in the top 10 percent 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,” Heinz said.
