May 7, 2013
MACOMB, IL – Macomb High School senior Sarah Keck, of Macomb, 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.
Keck said she will likely major in elementary education and Spanish education at Western.
Keck said she chose Western because of the University's reputation for the elementary education and Spanish programs.
"Western offers a variety of majors and degree programs, but at the same time, they offer the individual care and support needed to pursue each of these fields of study," she said.
At Western, Keck said she hopes to participate in Spanish and multicultural clubs and activities.
In high school, Keck participated in the National Honor Society, Ecology Club, Spanish Club, choir and theatre programs.
After graduation from WIU, Keck plans to become an elementary school teacher and pursue teaching students in foreign countries.
