Study Pays Off in Scholastic Recognition GREG GILLETTE-VALEDICTORIAN DUANE STEVENS-SALUTATORI AN Scholastically, the Class of 1968 was a profitable one for Rock Island. September brought the announce¬ ment of the thirty-two students who ranked in the top five percent at the end of their junior year, therefore becoming automatic members of the National Honor Society. Specific class rank was determined in February at the end of seven semesters. At this time, the aca¬ demic leaders of their class —valedictorian, salutatorian, and top ten —were named. In addition to classroom work, Rocky students par¬ ticipated commendably in scholarship competition. The lowa-lllinois Gas and Electric Company Scholarship Pro¬ gram chose three senior boys as part of the ten semifi¬ nalists in the company ' s Illinois district. Recognition was based on test scores, high school transcript, leadership, and the principal ' s recommendation. As a result of high ACT scores, a total of 200 area students were named as semifinalists by the Illinois State Scholarship Commission, 94 of whom attended Rocky. They had the choice of a monetary or honorary award, applicable to any state college or university. sl?ivNDINr ' Z Z Tn " ® ’ Z ore.
