Rocky Students Named as Charles O. Austin Scholars

At the Board of Education meeting on August 8, 26 Rock Island High School seniors were honored as Charles O. Austin Jr. Scholars. The students were presented with certificates of recognition for completing six semesters of study and earning a 3.5 GPA or higher.
The designation was established by the Board of Education in honor of Charles O. Austin, Jr., who served District #41 for 14 years as Rock Island High School Principal and for 7 years as Superintendent of Schools. Austin demanded excellence, was a roll model for achievement, and directly impacted the lives of thousands of our communities’ youth.
Julie Hansen, daughter of the late Chuck Austin III and granddaughter of Charles O. Austin Jr., attended to present the certificates.
