Golden Apple Scholars

Two D211 students named Golden Apple Scholars

At its May 26, 2016 meeting, the Board of Education recognized Hoffman Estates High School student Alyssa Bellows and Palatine High School student Jhared Juarez who were named Golden Apple Scholars by the Golden Apple Foundation and are interested in entering the teaching profession.  Each year, thousands of Illinois high school students who are interested in entering the teaching profession are nominated for this prestigious distinction, of which just 200 were selected in an intense and competitive process.  In return for the extensive professional, personal, and financial support Golden Apple Scholars receive, each student must attend an Illinois college or university that participates in the program, and agree to teach for five years in an Illinois school of need upon graduation.  These students truly represent the “best and brightest young men and women in Illinois.”
