2018 Extraordinary Seniors
Every year, the U.S. Department of Education recognizes and honors "some of our nation's most distinguished graduating high school seniors" in its Presidential Scholars Program. Today, Warren was one of 630 students out of approximately 3.3 million (!) graduating American seniors named as a semifinalist. Scholars will be announced in early May. Regardless, being named a semifinalist, one of the nation's top student honors, is a truly incredible achievement. Congratulations to Warren!
