U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos announced the selection of Isha Parupudi of Clear Springs High School as a 2019 U.S. Presidential Scholar. Parupudi is one of only 161 American high school seniors selected for demonstrating outstanding academic achievement, artistic excellence, leadership, citizenship, service, and contribution to school and community.

“I want to congratulate this year’s class of Presidential Scholars on their achievement both inside of the classroom and out,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. “Their hard work and commitment to excellence, no matter what challenge they are tackling, will serve them well throughout their lifelong learning journeys. I have no doubt that many of tomorrow’s leaders are among this year’s class of scholars.”

The White House Commission on Presidential Scholars selects honored scholars annually based on their academic success, artistic excellence, essays, school evaluations and transcripts, as well as evidence of community service, leadership, and demonstrated commitment to high ideals. Of the 3.6 million students expected to graduate from high school this year, more than 5,200 candidates qualified for the 2019 awards determined by outstanding performance on the College Board SAT and ACT exams, and through nominations made by Chief State School Officers and other partner recognition organizations.

Created in 1964, the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program has honored more than 7,500 of the nation’s top-performing students with the prestigious award given to honorees during the annual ceremony in Washington D.C. The 2019 ceremony will be held June 23 in Washington D.C. where each honoree will receive a Presidential Scholar Medallion.
