Congratulations to the 335 students in the 44th District who have been named as Illinois State Scholars for 2010.

These students rank in the top 10 percent of the state’s high school seniors from 725 high schools across Illinois. Selection is based on SAT, ACT and/or Prairie State Achievement Exam scores, and/or class rank at the end of their junior year.

High school guidance counselors work with the Illinois Student Assistance Commission to determine which students have earned this honor.

A LOT OF HISTORIC FIRSTS

Governor Pat Quinn presented his first State of the State address January 13 to a joint session of the General Assembly.

This Governor has the dubious honor of presiding over an Administration that has achieved a number of historic firsts: the largest deficit, the worst credit rating, the worst backlog of unpaid bills, and the largest taxpayer debt.
