Attention Class of 2020

Illinois Lutheran is running a campaign featuring our senior students, and we would love for all of our seniors to participate. God made each of us just the way we are, and we want to tell people out there that our school is made up of great students with individual God-given talents, gifts and interests. Who better to talk about our school than those that are about to graduate from it?

We would feature each senior on our website for a few days. We just need your student to complete a list of questions, and send us a favorite pic of your senior. Attached below is a list of the questions that your student would answer for this project. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Jessica Bushey at jbushey@ilhs.org.
