MACOMB, IL – South Elgin High School senior Rosetta Rubino has been selected for Western Illinois University's Centennial Honors Scholarship, which covers four years of tuition, fees and a residence hall room at the school.

High school students with an ACT score of 32 or higher and a grade point average of 3.5 or higher are eligible for the scholarship.

At WIU, Rubino plans to major in information systems.

Rubino said she chose Western because of the Centennial Honors Scholarship.

"Having a prestigious scholarship that essentially covers tuition and room costs for four years alleviates some of the stress college can bring," she said.

At Western, Rubino hopes to participate in extra-curricular activities, including gaming or internet clubs, recreational tennis and volunteer opportunities.

In high school, Rubino was a member of the junior varsity tennis team as well as the National Honors Society and the anime club.

After graduation, Rubino said she would like to pursue an internship in Chicago.
