5 Presidential Scholar Candidates in Metro high schools

As if graduating from high school wasn't enough of an honor, some Metro students could be on their way to graduating as Presidential Scholars! Five high school seniors in our district have been chosen by the U.S. Department of Education as Presidential Scholar Candidates, meaning they will go through a rigorous national application process. They are among 3,000 candidates in the nation, a number that will shrink to 560 semifinalists and ultimately to 141 Presidential Scholars.

Our candidates are:

  • Claire B. from Hume-Fogg
  • Aditya G. from Hume-Fogg
  • Noel W. from Hume-Fogg
  • Melissa G. from MLK
  • Jenny Z. from MLK

They were chosen for outstanding academic achievement, particularly for scoring highly on the ACT or SAT.

We are so proud of them, and you can bet we'll be tracking their progress. Check back for updates!
