Congratulations to the Morton East High School Class of 2019! Thursday, May 9th, 2019, Morton East had the pleasure of honoring their high achieving Mustangs. These seniors have completed their high school years with honors, scholarships and best wishes from their instructors. A few of the honors given were the "Presidential Award for Educational Excellence" and the "Illinois State Scholars".

Students who won the Presidental Award for Educational Excellence were given the award due to their 3.5 grade point average and scored above the 85th percentile in national testing. A certificate and a letter from the President of the United States were awarded. The Illinois State Scholars Award was given to high achieving seniors in the state of Illinois based on class rank and standardized test scores. 

Students were also awarded department awards and local scholarships. Department awards were given to students whose instructors nominated for their strong work ethic, leadership skills, and professionalism in the classroom, as well as being caring and respectful to their instructors and to their peers. Local scholarships awarded included the Central Federal Savings and Loan Scholarship, the Scott S. Goodman Scholarship, Morton Council Union Scholarship, and the first ever Morton 201 Foundation Pay it Forward Scholarship. Congratulations to all of the scholarship recipients and to all of the Morton East seniors who were presented awards. District 201 is extremely proud of you and would like to thank the Board of Education, District Superintendent, Mr. Timothy Truesdale, Morton East building administration, Mr. Scott Goodman, the Morton 201 Foundation and all of the scholarship sponsors. A special thank you goes to all of the parents of District 201. These students have thrived both inside of the classroom and outside.
