(Oswego), IL – (December 3, 2018) - Oswego Community Unit School District 308 is pleased to announce a record-setting 105 students from Oswego East High School and 78 students for Oswego High Schools’ graduating classes of 2019 have been recognized as Illinois State Scholars.
The Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC), the state agency committed to helping to make college accessible and affordable for Illinois families, confers this prestigious recognition to top Illinois high school students annually.
