Marquette High Senior Named U.S. Presidential Scholar Semifinalist

Marquette High senior Jatin Sridhar has been named a semifinalist in the 2024 U.S. Presidential Scholars Program.

He is one of 625 semifinalists nationally out of a pool of more than 3 million high school seniors and one of only 11 from Missouri. In May, up to 161 students from this group will be named as Presidential Scholars, one of the nation's highest honors for high school students.

The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964 to recognize and honor some of our nation's most distinguished graduating high school seniors.

Students have the opportunity to become Presidential Scholars based on three paths of accomplishment. The majority of the scholars are selected on the basis of broad academic achievement, while other students are selected on the basis of their academic and artistic scholarship in the visual arts, the performing arts or creative writing and on the basis of their outstanding scholarship and accomplishment in career and technical education fields.

Sridhar is one of only 60 students nationally to be named a U.S. Presidential Scholar in Career and Technical Education semifinalist.
