LHS senior named candidate in U.S. Presidential Scholars Program
Posted Wednesday, February 10, 2016
Loveland High School (LHS) congratulates LHS Senior Jonathan Reese for being named one of around 4,000 students in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Scholars Program. The candidates were selected from nearly 3.3 million students expected to graduate from U.S. high schools in 2016.
Inclusion in the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program, now in its 52nd year, is one of the highest honors bestowed upon graduating high school seniors. Scholars are selected on the basis of superior academic and artistic achievements, leadership qualities, strong character and involvement in community and school activities.
A distinguished panel of educators will review submission and select 800 semifinalists in early April. The Commission on Presidential Scholars, a group of 32 eminent citizens appointed by the President, will select the finalists, and the U.S. Department of Education will announce the Scholars in May.
Congratulations, Jonathan Reese!
