Each year an outstanding senior from each of the four-year degree granting institutions of higher learning in Illinois is named a Student Laureate of The Lincoln Academy of Illinois.
This year’s Lincoln Laureate from Governors State University is Tamara S. Lewis of Chicago. Lewis exemplifies the characteristics of Lincoln Laureates who are chosen for their commitment to the principles of democracy and humanity as embodied by Abraham Lincoln. She was also honored for her outstanding academic achievement and her profound and generous service to others.
