UCHS senior semi-finalist for Presidential Scholar award
Unalaska City High School senior Aidan Bobbitt has been named a semi-finalist in the nation-wide competition to select 140 U.S. Presidential Scholars. Aidan is one of 550 chosen from a group of 3900. The selectors look for superior achievement academically, leadership qualities, personal character, and involvement in community and school activities.
The Presidential Scholars Program recognizes and honors some of the country’s most distinguished graduating high school seniors. It was created in 1964 by executive order of the president and is one of the highest honors a high school student can attain.
The Commission on Presidential Scholars will select one young man and one young woman from each state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and US students living abroad. Additionally, up to 20 students representing the visual, literary and performing arts are selected as well.
In June the scholars travel to Washington, DC for the award ceremony and to participate in events held in their honor. The expense-paid trip gives the students an opportunity to meet with government officials and other luminaries and to visit museums and monuments and to ride the excellent Washington subway.
The final list of scholars will be announced in May.
Aidan is the son of Sonia Handforth-Kome and Chris Bobbitt.
