Student scholars recognized
Five local students have been invited to apply to become U.S. Presidential Scholars.
Champlain Valley Union High School students Andrea Joseph of Williston, Jonathan Liebman of Williston, Conor Mcquiston of Williston and Carolyn P. Woodruff of Charlotte, along with Burlington High School student and St. George resident Monica Barker were named among 46 Vermont students on the list.
The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964, by executive order of the President, to recognize and honor some of the country’s most distinguished graduating high school seniors. Each year, up to 141 students are named as Presidential Scholars, one of the nation’s highest honors for high school students.
Scholars will be selected in April and recognized during National Recognition Weekend in June. Scholars receive an expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. to meet with government officials, educators, authors, musicians and scientists.
