MACOMB, IL — High school senior Ryan Homer, from Batavia, IL has been selected for Western Illinois University's Centennial Honors Scholarship, which awards $10,000 per year to academically high-achieving students.

High school students with an ACT score of 30 or higher (or SAT equivalent of 1390), and a grade point average of 3.0 or higher, are eligible for the scholarship. 

Homer plans to major in biology, with an option in zoology.

"Getting to see the biology building, and learn about WIU's biology program, had a big impact," Homer stated. "The affordability of WIU was also a major plus after earning the Centennial Honors Scholarship."

In high school, Homer is involved in the Chess Club and student government.
