Through the Foundation, the administrators of District 230 formally recognize one senior at each campus who:

  • Approaches academics with an open mind and rises to the challenge of the highest standards of excellence.

  • Represents the very best that their school has to offer through co-curricular involvement and achievement.

  • Demonstrates leadership in representing their fellow students, their school, and their community. 

In appreciation for the work of our students, a recipient from each school is awarded a $2,500 scholarship.
