Triopia student wins IESA award
Triopia’s Anna Burrus has been named an Illinois Elementary School Association Scholar Attitude Award winner.
A total of 15 students across the state received the award, which is presented by Caterpillar. A panel of judges convened at the IESA Office on March 29 and selected one student from each of the 15 IESA membership divisions for the award. To be considered, a student from an IESA member school must be of eighth-grade status, have a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale, must have participated in at least one IESA activity during each year of their two-year junior high career, and demonstrated outstanding citizenship during their junior high tenure. In addition, each student is required to submit an essay titled “The Value of Sportsmanship.”
