State Rep. Chuck Jefferson, D-Rockford, awarded Rockford’s West Middle School students last week for their commitment to academic success and community involvement.

“It is very important that our young students are encouraged and acknowledged for their achievements in school,” Jefferson explained. “Because education is top priority of mine, this year in Springfield, I backed measures to reinstate state funding towards public education, and supported an initiative that will create a public-private partnership to award tuition grants to eligible Rockford high school students, to help them graduate and afford opportunities in higher education.”
