Lamar CISD Seniors Selected as Candidates for U.S. Presidential Scholars Program

Feb 25, 2021 | Community Relations

Foster High School's Chloe Mills and George Ranch High School's Cameron Krouch have been named two of more than 4,500 candidates in the 2021 U.S. Presidential Scholars Program. Candidates were selected from nearly 3.6 million students expected to graduate from U.S. high schools in the year 2021. Scholars are selected on the basis of superior academic and artistic achievements, leadership qualities, strong character and involvement in community and school activities. 

The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964 by Executive Order of the President to recognize some of our nation's most distinguished graduating seniors for their accomplishments in many areas: academic success, leadership, and service to school and community. 

A distinguished panel of educators will review all submissions and select approximately 600 semifinalists in early April. The Commission on Presidential Scholars, appointed by the President, will select the finalists, and the U.S. Department of Education will announce the Scholars in May. 

If circumstances permit, scholars will be invited to Washington, DC, for several days in June to receive the Presidential Scholars Medallion at a recognition ceremony and to participate in events and activities.
