Presidential Scholarship Candidate

Congratulations to Linsly senior, Annabelle Blosser, who was named as a nominee in the United States Presidential Scholars Program. 
In addition, congratulations to Linsly senior, James Jin, who was also recognized as a Presidential Scholar nominee for his high academic achievements and SAT/ACT scores, but is ineligible to continue in the program based on his citizenship status.

The United States Presidential Scholars program recognizes some of the Nation’s most distinguished high school seniors. Each year, up to 161 students are named U.S. Presidential Scholars, one of the nation’s highest honors for high school students. Each year, over 4,500 candidates are identified for the component of the program that focuses on academic achievement and based on having scored exceptionally well on the SAT or ACT. Nominees for the Presidential Scholars program are required to complete an application process including essays, school reports, and transcripts.

Approximately 600 candidates are then named semifinalists in the program. In April, the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars reviews the applications of semifinalists and then selects up to 161 U.S. Presidential Scholars each year in May.
