Parkway Central High Senior Named Presidential Scholar

David A. Levary, a senior from Central High School, is among 139 outstanding American students selected as 2008 Presidential Scholars.  All of the scholars will be honored June 21-24 in Washington, D.C  
The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established by Executive Order in 1964.  Each year, up to 141 graduating seniors are honored for their exceptional scholarship, leadership, talent in the visual and performing arts, and community involvement.
This year’s class of Presidential Scholars includes one young woman and one young man from each state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, and from families of U.S. citizens living abroad.  In addition, there are 15 at-large selections and 20 Presidential Scholars in the Arts.
Elizabeth Y. Qin from Central High School and eight other Missouri students were named semifinalists in the 2008 Presidential Scholars program.
Both students were recognized by the Parkway Board of Education at their May 28 meeting.
