Radnor High School senior Katherine Hung is one of only 160 students nationwide to qualify for the 2016 U.S. Presidential Scholar award, writes Kara Seymour for the Radnor Patch.
The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was created 52 years ago and has since honored close to 7,000 of the country’s top-performing students. This is the second consecutive year that a student from Radnor High School has received this prestigious award.
Hung, who will start studying at Harvard University this fall, was selected from over 5,600 qualified candidates and is one of just two selected from the state.
The ceremony will take place in Washington, D.C. on June 19th where the honorees will receive a Presidential Scholar Medallion.
In addition to her scholastic and artistic achievements, Hung was selected based on her leadership ability, community service, strong character, and commitment to high ideals.
Hung’s achievements include involvement in Future Business Leaders of America, the “Radnorite” newspaper, and Model United Nations. Her time outside of school is spent working for the Hats 4 Hope Foundation as well as pursuing a third-degree black belt.
