Morgan Park Academy seniors Halle Berghoff, Angela Cabrera, Bryan Coronado, Zara Hashmi, Ireland Lawrence, and Maya Lopez have been recognized for outstanding academic achievement, named 2019-2020 State Scholars by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission.

This year, 35 percent of MPA seniors who live in Illinois were selected. (International students are not eligible.)

In the past eight years, MPA has had 63 State Scholars.
