Two Hononegah Community High School Students are name Semifinalists in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Competition
11/28/2018
Rockton, Ill. (November 28, 2018) - Congratulations to Matthew Montavon and Alicia Repka on being named Semifinalists in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program! These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $31 million that will be offered next spring. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship® award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. Over 90 percent of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and about half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar® title. NMSC, a not-for-profit organization that operates without government assistance, was established in 1955 specifically to conduct the annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Scholarships are underwritten by NMSC with its own funds and by approximately 410 business organizations and higher education institutions that share NMSC’s goals of honoring the nation’s scholastic champions and encouraging the pursuit of academic excellence.

Hononegah Board of Education Recognizes Teachers For Earning the Excellence in Education Grants
Hononegah Board of Education Recognizes Teachers For Earning the Excellence in Education Grants

The Illinois Retired Teachers Association Foundation (IRTAF) awards nearly $36,500 in grant money to several public school educators (Pre-K through 12) statewide. IRTAF is affiliated with the Illinois Retired Teachers Association, a lobbying group for retired educators, with a current membership of over 38,000. On October 10, 2018, Melissa Angeles was awarded her IRTAF grant check. Below, you will find a summarized paragraph of the project. Melissa Angeles, Hononegah Community High School, Rockton ($420.00) Area 1 The objective is to ensure that each chemistry student at Hononegah High School will be able to have a greater understanding about the properties of acids and bases through titrations. The students will benefit from the magnetic hot plates because more students will be able to do titrations. Specifically, students will be engaged in thinking like a scientist by using scientific equipment in an inquiry lab to determine the concentration of an unknown acid. All labs will take place in the chemistry classrooms at Hononegah High School to ensure proper technique of lab equipment and safety precautions. The IRTA Foundation designed this program based on the idea that educators often do not have additional revenue sources available for unique student projects or classroom materials. This program allotted a total of $36,500 to Illinois public school educators for these purposes. Applicants were required to meet the proper criteria and to submit their proposals by early June. The IRTAF Board of Directors selected the grant recipients and awards are being presented now. The Illinois Principals Association played a vital role in assisting IRTAF with the promotion of this program.

Anita Bond, Hononegah HS, Rockton ($286.50) Area 1 This system can be used in all of my courses and for a wide variety of interactive purposes. Furthermore, this system is easily movable among classrooms to be shared with other teachers. Finally, this program doesn't require teachers to program all game questions so it can be used for formative assessment quickly.
