On May 21, U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos announced the 56th class of U.S. Presidential Scholars recognizing 161 high school seniors, including one from Beverly Hills High School (BHHS), Michael Allana. He is the first student graduating from BHHS in 17 years to receive the honor.

The Presidential Scholars program recognizes students for their academic achievement, artistic excellence, technical expertise, leadership, citizenship, service, and contribution to school and community. Nationwide, an estimated 3.6 million students will graduate high school this year. Of them, 5,300 qualified for consideration based on the College Board SAT or the American College Testing Program’s AP exam scores. Students may also be eligible through nominations made by Chief State School Officers, other partner recognition organizations or the National Young Arts Foundation’s nationwide program.
