MACOMB, IL – Franklin High School senior Luke Bergschneider, from Franklin, 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 1360), and a grade point average of 3.0 or higher, are eligible for the scholarship.

Bergschneider plans to major in agriculture science. He chose WIU because of its agriculture program.
"(WIU) is very cost friendly, which will give me more freedom when I pursue my future plans," he said.
After graduation, Bergschneider would like to pursue a master's degree and become either an agronomist or return to his family's farm.
