Laible named a candidate in Presidential Scholars Program
Sarah Laible, a senior in Lehighton, has been named as a candidate in the 2019 United States Presidential Scholars Program on behalf of the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars and the United States Department of Education.
Laible is one of approximately 4,500 students to receive this invitation because of broad academic achievement and having scored exceptionally well on the SAT or ACT.
This program was established in 1964 by executive order of the president to recognize some of our nation’s most distinguished graduating seniors for their accomplishments in many areas: academic success, leadership, and service to school and community.
Each spring, the Commission on Presidential Scholars names up to 161 distinguished graduating high school seniors as U.S. Presidential Scholars.
Being selected as a U.S. Presidential Scholar is one of the highest honors our nation’s high school students may receive.
