Two Missouri high school seniors have been honored by the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars.
Tiffany Lee, a student at Lindbergh High School in St. Louis, and Corey M. Matzat, a student at Branson High School, were named 2013 U.S. Presidential Scholars for their academic achievement. They have been invited to attend National Recognition Weekend in June in Washington, D.C., where they will be awarded the U.S. Presidential Scholars medallion.
“This award is one of the nation’s highest honors for high school students,” said Missouri Commissioner of Education Chris L. Nicastro. “As two of our state’s most accomplished seniors, I commend these students for their commitment to their education.”
One young man and one young woman from each state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and from U.S. families living abroad and 15 students chosen at large were named U.S. Presidential Scholars. An additional 20 students were named U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts.
