Zaptin Named Presidential Semifinalist
The United States Presidential Scholars Program has named senior Jack Zaptin a semifinalist.
Candidates are selected based on demonstrated excellence in scholarship, leadership, artistic and technical pursuits, personal conduct, and selfless service to others. Those who advance from semifinalists to Presidential Scholars will receive an expenses-paid trip to Washington where they will receive a medallion during a special ceremony sponsored by the White House.
From the 3.6 million students anticipated to graduate this year, 5,000 were selected to be candidates. About 630 of these have advanced to the semifinalist stage, and only 161 students, at most, will become U.S. Presidential Scholars.
