Congratulations to our 2023 Deirdre Purcell Collins Math Award Recipients! 

These recipients were selected by their principals and math teachers based on their test scores, classroom performance, and potential for achievement in math-related fields.  This award was established in 2007 by the family of Deirdre Purcell Collins to recognize and encourage achievement in math among girls.  Two seventh grade girls from each middle school in the Peoria Public Schools District are selected annually for this recognition. The award is named in memory of Deirdre who grew up in Peoria and attended Whittier, Washington Gifted (now Reservoir), and Manual High School.  She successfully incorporated her love for math in her career choices.

      Congratulations to the recipients of the Mike McCord Basketball Scholarship.  Letters with more information with additional information were mailed to each recipient on May 15.  Mike McCord was a beloved member of our community who was passionate about education, basketball, and helping kids. He founded Illinois Mutual in Peoria and his family established a scholarship in his honor to provide middle school students from Peoria Public Schools the opportunity to attend Bradley's Coach Wardle's Basketball Camp.  Next year’s applications will be available in April 2024.
