The 2017 Banquet was held at the Robinson Community Center on March 21, 2017. Guest speaker for the evening was Rondrell Moore of WTHI-TV. Over 200 students, school administrators, and guests were in attendance to celebrate the accomplishments of 49 State Scholars from our eleven public school districts.
Promoting Student Academic Performance
Each year, ROE 12 is pleased to honor the senior students of our five-county region who have earned the designation of 'Illinois State Scholar.' Statewide, only about 10% of seniors earn that honor. A combination of ACT scores and high school grade point average are combined and used to create a Weighted Scale Score which, if high enough, earns the student the designation. Since 2001,
ROE 12 has been proud to honor these outstanding students with an evening of inspiration and celebration.
