Jade Anderson of Chatham, a senior at Glenwood Senior High School, has been admitted to the University of Illinois Springfield for Fall Semester 2020 and awarded a $30,000 Lincoln Merit Scholarship for tuition over four years.

At UIS, she plans to major in communication and be part of the UIS cross country and track and field teams.

The scholarship is awarded based on GPA and ACT/SAT scores and can be renewed for a total of four years if the student maintains college GPA requirements.

At Glenwood, she is a member of the varsity cross country and track and field teams. She is also part of CrossFit XLT, Glenwood’s “Titan Fever” Show Choir and The Titan Torch. Outside of school, she works for the Chatham Clarion newspaper.

“I really love the communication program offered at UIS, and I am very grateful for the opportunity to run for UIS,” she said. “I love the team atmosphere - the coaches and the team members - and the sport!”

Following graduation from UIS, she wants to become a journalist.
