Kewanee Students Earn Seal of Biliteracy


In a remarkable academic achievement, 37 students from Kewanee High School have earned the Seal of Biliteracy and Commendation toward Biliteracy, affirming their proficiency in both Spanish and English. This recognition, awarded by the Illinois State Board of Education, highlights their linguistic abilities and preparedness for a globalized future.
