Justin Moore is the new principal at East St. Louis Senior High School. He acknowledges that there are challenges ahead to improve the academic performance in District 189, but is optimistic the students' test scores will improve.
Cahokia High School students had a vigil for math teacher Cory Herschler, who died. The 35-year-old was beloved by students and staff. Classes were canceled the day of his funeral because 37 of his colleagues and some of his students wanted to attend the funeral in Quincy. Students who weren’t able to go to the funeral organized the vigil.
