MACOMB, IL – Orion Community Unit High School senior Camden Sellers, of Coal Valley, IL, has been selected for Western Illinois University's Centennial Honors Scholarship, which awards $10,000 per year to academically high-achieving students.

High school students with an ACT score of 30 or higher (or SAT equivalent of 1360), and a grade point average of 3.0 or higher, are eligible for the scholarship.

Sellers plans to major in engineering with an emphasis in robotics.

"The balance between quality and price is what attracted me to WIU," said Sellers. "It's something that's difficult to find anywhere else."

After graduation, Sellers plans to continue his education by getting his master's degree and then looks forward to working in the field of robotics.
