Congratulations to Frenship High School senior Madison Rattan who has been selected as a candidate in the 2015 U.S. Presidential Scholars Program by the United States Department of Education. Rattan joins a distinctive group of only 3,900 candidates selected from the nearly 3.2 million United States students expected to graduate high school in 2015.
The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program is one of the highest honors that can be bestowed upon a graduating high school senior. The selected 2015 U.S. Presidential Scholars candidates received this honor based on their performance on the College Board SAT or ACT Assessment. Scholars are also selected on superior academic achievements, leadership, and character as well as school and community involvement.
The U.S. Department of Education will select semifinalists in early April and announce the final selection of scholars in May.
