Three NH students named Presidential Scholars
The White House Commission on Presidential Scholars and the U.S. Department of Education have named three Granite State students as 2014 U.S. Presidential Scholars.
DeLoi, 18, is a homeschool student whose passion is the arts. While her focus is music, specifically the harp, DeLoi says she has a wide range of interests.
“I really want to study how the arts impact society,” said DeLoi, who is still amazed by the honor. She was one of only 20 students nationwide to receive a U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts, which mandates different criteria than a traditional Presidential Scholar award.
Facey, of Amherst, is preparing for his first semester at Brown University this fall, where he will study applied mathematics with a focus on physics.
“They represent the potential of all young citizens to lift up America,” she added.
Other work, including school evaluations, transcripts, community service and leadership were also considered. The 2014 U.S. Presidential Scholars are comprised of one young man and one young woman from each state, as well as 15 chosen at-large and 20 U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Arts.
