Brookfield East Senior, Colin Gray-Hoehn, Named U.S. Presidential Scholar for Wisconsin

The School District of Elmbrook is proud to announce that Brookfield East Senior, Colin Gray-Hoehn, has been named a U.S. Presidential Scholar for the state of Wisconsin!

Out of the 5,100 candidates who qualified for the 2017 awards, Colin was selected as one of three students honored from Wisconsin and one of 161 Presidential Scholars chosen in the United States. Determined by outstanding performance on the College Board SAT and ACT exams, through nominations made by Chief State School Officers, other partner recognition organizations or the National YoungArts Foundation's nationwide YoungArts™competition, the 53rd class of U.S. Presidential Scholars will join the ranks of almost 7,500 of the nation's top-performing students throughout the years.

Inclusion in the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program, now in its 53rd year, is one of the highest honors bestowed upon graduating high school seniors. Each year, final selection of the nation's 121 academic Presidential Scholars will consist of one male and one female from each state, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and from families of U.S. citizens living abroad.

Colin will be honored with a Presidential Scholar Medallion on June 18 in Washington D.C. at a ceremony sponsored by the White House.
