MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A local high school student has been named a 2019 U.S. Presidential Scholar.
Dashiell Charles Miller Stevanovich, a student at Socastee High School, joins three other students from South Carolina who were also named scholars.
“I want to congratulate this year’s class of Presidential Scholars on their achievement both inside of the classroom and out,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. “Their hard work and commitment to excellence, no matter what challenge they are tackling, will serve them well throughout their lifelong learning journeys. I have no doubt that many of tomorrow’s leaders are among this year’s class of Scholars.”
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 evidence of community service, leadership and demonstrated commitment to high ideals.
The 2019 ceremony will be held June 23, when each honoree will receive a Presidential Scholar Medallion.
