Presidential Scholar

The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964, by Executive Order of the President, to recognize and honor some of our Nation’s most distinguished graduating seniors.  Annually, up to 161 students are chosen from among tens of thousands of outstanding seniors to become U.S. Presidential Scholars, one of the Nation’s highest honors for high school students. This year's Rhode Island Presidential Scholar and only Exeter-West Greenwich student to win the honor is, Alexander Jedson. We could not be prouder of Alex and his accomplishment in winning the Nation's highest honor.
