We are pleased to offer congratulations to this year's graduating high school students who earned recognition in U.S. Presidential Scholars Program. Please note the U.S. Department of Education's press release and visit the Department of Education’s Website for more information on the U.S. Presidential Scholar's Program (https://www2.ed.gov/programs/psp/index.html).
The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964, by executive order of the President, to recognize and honor some of our nation's most distinguished graduating high school seniors. In 1979, the program was extended to recognize students who demonstrate exceptional talent in the visual, creative, and performing arts. In 2015, the program was again extended to recognize students who demonstrate ability and accomplishment in career and technical education fields. Each year, up to 161 students are named as Presidential Scholars, one of the nation's highest honors for high school students, including 20 of the scholars recognized with accomplishments in career and technical education.
