Congratulations to CTE student Zoe Vaspol for being chosen as a candidate for U.S Presidential Scholar in Career and Technical Education and is one of four CTE Presidential Scholar nominees from RI. Zoe will now compete at the national level!
The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964, by the executive order of the President, to recognize and honor some of our nation's most distinguished graduating high school seniors. In 1979, the program was extended to recognize students who demonstrate exceptional talent in the visual, creative, and performing arts. In 2015, the program was again extended to recognize students who demonstrate ability and accomplishment in career and technical education fields. Each year, up to 161 students are named as Presidential Scholars, one of the nation's highest honors for high school students.
