Miles Christensen, a senior at North High School in Downers Grove, received Honorable Mention in the 21st All-State Academic Team contest of the Illinois High School Association (IHSA). Christensen is a member of the track and field and cross country teams.
“This is a prestigious recognition program because it recognizes both academic and athletic achievements,” says Principal Janice Schwarze. “Miles is most deserving of this coveted award, and we couldn’t be more proud of him.”
Every IHSA member school was invited to nominate one female student and one male student by the February deadline. Nominees needed to possess a minimum 3.50 grade point average on 4.0 scale after their 7th semester, have participated in at least two IHSA sponsored sports or activities during each of the last two years and demonstrated outstanding citizenship.
The nominations were evaluated by a committee made up of IHSA principals, representatives of the Illinois Activities Directors Association and representatives of the Illinois Athletic Directors Association.
