The Presidential Scholar Award is given to a select few seniors who excel in their studies in high school. There are only just over 30 students in the state of Virginia who were nominated. Andrew Brown, one of Graham High’s own seniors, received a nomination for the award.

“It feels like all my work has led up to this, and it’s one of the most satisfying feelings I’ve had in my life.” says Andrew. He received the news of his nomination April 4th. “I got a letter about it, and I had the best smile on my face.” Semi-finalists of the program will be announced in mid-April according to the program’s website. After this, the names of the official US Presidential Scholars will be posted in May. Andrew still has a bit of a ways to go. “I’m being patient about it and just focusing on my studies. Studies should always come first, after all.”

If Andrew goes all the way with the program, he will be visiting the capitol city of Washington D.C. to officially receive his award. All students are recognized at the White House and receive the Presidential Scholars Medallion.
