dos Remedios Nominated for U.S. Presidential Scholars Program
The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964 by executive order of the President to recognize and honor some of the nation’s most distinguished high school seniors. Nominees from each state advance to the national pool, where the Commission on Presidential Scholars selects 500 semifinalists. In April, 121 students, including one male and one female from each state, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and from families of U.S. citizens living abroad, will be named U.S. Presidential Scholars. These students will be recognized at the White House later this summer.
“Roberto has taken full advantage of his academic and extra-curricular opportunities while at Tilghman, and he has invested himself wholeheartedly in his school and in his community,” said Superintendent Donald Shively. “It is a tremendous honor to be recognized in this prestigious program. His dedication to academic excellence is to be commended at the highest level.”
