CONCORD- New Hampshire Education Commissioner Frank Edelblut today congratulated a pair of New Hampshire students selected to 56th class of U.S. Presidential Scholars. U.S Education Secretary Betsy DeVos announced the selection of two Nashua students, Jeffrey Lam from Nashua High School South and Claire Emily Reynolds from Bishop Guertin High School, this afternoon.

"I am so proud of Jeffrey and Claire for the hard work they've put in to receive this great accomplishment," Edelblut said. "I'm sure that this honor is just one step on their paths to bright futures."

The U.S. Presidential Scholars program was established by executive order in 1964 to recognize some of our nation's most distinguished graduating high school seniors. The program was expanded in 1979 to recognize students who demonstrate exceptional talent in the visual, creative and performing arts, and again in 2015, the program was again extended to recognize students who demonstrate ability and accomplishment in career and technical education fields.
