Six Little Rock Central High students has been selected as candidates for the United States Presidential Scholars Program. These students must complete an application to be eligible for selection as one of the 500 semifinalists, and ultimately as one of two Scholars from our state.
Scholars are chosen on the basis of their accomplishments in many areas-academic and artistic success, leadership, and involvement in school and the community- and represent excellence in education and the promise of greatness in America's youth. They are invited to Washington, DC in June to participate in National Recognition Weekend, which includes many enrichment activities and events and culminates with the presentation to the students of the Presidential Scholars medallion during a ceremony sponsored by the White House.
These students are:
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 seniors. In 1979, the program was expanded to recognize students who demonstrate exceptional scholarship and talent in the visual, creative, and performing arts. Annually, up to 141 students are chosen from among outstanding graduating seniors to become U.S. Presidential Scholars, one of the nation's highest honors for high school students.
