"We are excited for each of these students to have earned their recognition. This is a testament to our student's hard work in the classroom, on College Board assessments, and their achievements outside of the classroom.

Congratulations to each of these students and their families," said Galesburg Junior Senior High Assistant Principal, Mitzi Escobar.

Students can use this recognition on future college and scholarship applications as well as connect with students across the country, helping them connect to colleges and stand out during the admissions process.  

Congratulations to all six students!
