Two APS Students Named Presidential Scholar Semifinalists

The national program honors some of the nation's most distinguished graduating high school seniors.

Two APS students have been named semifinalists for the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program:
  • Richard Huang of La Cueva High School
  • Francesca Jarrett
The program, established in 1964 by executive order of the President, recognizes and honors some of our nation's most distinguished graduating high school seniors.
In 1979, the program was extended to recognize students who demonstrate exceptional talent in the visual, creative and performing arts.
Each year, up to 141 students are named as Presidential Scholars, one of the nation's highest honors for high school students.
