BCHS Senior Named Presidential Scholar Candidate
Yi Jiang is one of 56 seniors from Wisconsin who have been invited to apply for semi-finalist status.
A Brookfield Central High School senior has been selected as a candidate for the 2013 U.S. Presidential Scholars competition.
Yi Jiang's application is by invitation only based on his performance on the College Board SAT or the ACT assessment.
There are 56 other high school seniors from Wisconsin who have been invited to apply for semi-finalist status. Semifinalists are evaluated on their academic achievement, personal characteristics, leadership and service activities, and the quality and content of their essay.
In late April, the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars reviews the semi-finalist applications and selects up to 121 finalists based on their academic accomplishments.
The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964, by executive order of the President, to recognize and honor some of our nation's most distinguished graduating high school seniors.
The finalists, along with a teacher each identifies as “most influential,” will be honored during the program’s national recognition events, held in June in Washington, D.C.
