Peninsula High School is proud to announce that two of our seniors - Andrew Chi and Vivien He - have been named 2022 US Presidential Scholars.
The 2022 U.S. Presidential Scholars are comprised of one young man and one young woman from each state as well as 15 chosen at-large, 20 scholars in the arts and 20 scholars in career and technical education.
Our 2022 Presidential Scholars represent the best of America, and remind us that when empowered by education, there are no limits to what our young people can achieve," said U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona. "Today, I join President Biden to celebrate a class of scholars whose pursuit of knowledge, generosity of spirit, and exceptional talents bring our nation tremendous pride. Throughout one of the most trying periods in our nation's history and amid our recovery from the pandemic, our students have once again demonstrated their strength and that they have so much to contribute to our country. Thanks to them, I know America's future is bright."
The White House Commission on Presidential Scholars selects scholars annually based on their academic success, artistic and technical excellence, essays, school evaluations and transcripts, as well as a demonstrated commitment to community service and leadership.
