Alliance for Iowa State
-Make Your Voice Heard-

Every year, high schools nominate students for The Des Moines Sunday Register Academic All-State. Each school selects one graduating senior who stands out among his or her peers.

This year, more Des Moines Register Academic All-State team members are enrolling at Iowa State University than at any other institution in the state or nation. These are some of the best and brightest high school students in the state of Iowa, and we are thrilled that they are making Iowa State their college of choice! They are: 


Madeline Keane

Chase Koehler

North Mahaska High School

Computer science

Daphne Gates

Colton Thompson
