RRHS Senior Charlotte Weixel Named Candidate for U.S. Presidential Scholars Program

February 11, 2019  

ROCKY RIVER, Ohio – Rocky River High School senior Charlotte Weixel was recently named a candidate in the 2019 U.S. Presidential Scholars Program.

Weixel is one of approximately 4,500 candidates selected throughout the country from the nearly 3.6 million students expected to graduate from high schools this year.

The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program is now in its 55th year and is one of the highest honors bestowed upon graduating high school seniors.

The program was established in 1964 by Executive Order of the President to honor some of the nation’s most distinguished graduating high school seniors. Scholars are selected based on superior academic and artistic achievements, leadership qualities, strong character and involvement in community and school activities.

A panel of educators will review the submissions and select 600 semifinalists in early April. The Commission on Presidential Scholars will select up to 161 finalists and the U.S. Department of Education will announce the scholars in May and will invite those honorees to Washington, D.C. for the National Recognition Program in June.

Congratulations on this exceptional accomplishment and best of luck, Charlotte!
