Nine Oklahoma seniors selected as U.S. Presidential Scholar semifinalists Nine Oklahoma students have been named semifinalists for the U.S. Presidential Scholars award, one of the nation’s highest honors for high school students, by the U.S. Department of Education.
Each year, up to 161 graduating seniors are named Presidential Scholars for their accomplishments in academics, the arts, and career and technical education fields.
The Oklahoma semifinalists are as follows:
· Braden Burns of Kingfisher, Kingfisher High School
· Sean Michael Kuehn of Sand Springs, Charles Page High School
· Nicholas V. Papavassiliou of Norman, Norman North High School
· Brady M Read of Tulsa, Broken Arrow High School
· Alexander Steele of Guthrie, Edmond North High School
· Shrea Tyagi of Broken Arrow, Union High School
· Emily Jordan Benelli Ward of Locust Grove, Locust Grove High School
· Celina Zhao of Edmond, Edmond Memorial High School
· Jessica Nicole Zimmerman of Ardmore, Plainview High School
“We are proud to salute these exceptional seniors, who have excelled in the face of an unprecedented pandemic that has impacted all schools. Their dedication, resilience and leadership in their schools and communities are to be commended,” said State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister.
From nearly 3.6 million graduating high school seniors from across the country, over 6,500 students were identified as candidates in the program. The 2021 U.S. Presidential Scholars will be selected in mid-May.
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. The White House Commission on Presidential Scholars selects scholars annually based on their academic success, artistic excellence, essays, school evaluations and transcripts, as well as evidence of community service, leadership and demonstrated commitment to high ideals.
