CCSD seniors honored as U.S. Presidential Scholars

Two high school seniors recognized as 59th class of national scholars

LAS VEGAS – Clark County School District (CCSD) high school students Amy Park of West Career & Technical Academy and Troy Warren Harris of Ed W. Clark High School were selected for their accomplishments in academics, the arts, and career and technical education fields.

“It’s a tremendous honor for two of our CCSD students to be recognized nationally for their academic excellence and leadership in our community,” said CCSD Superintendent Jesus F. Jara. “We are so proud of Ms. Park and Mr. Harris’ educational achievements and leadership, and we look forward to their continuing success.”

The students are part of the 59th class of national scholars, comprised of more than 160 high school seniors. The scholars are selected annually by The White House Commission on Presidential Scholars based on their academic success, artistic and technical excellence, essays, school evaluations, and transcripts, as well as a demonstrated commitment to community service and leadership.

The White House will recognize the 2023 scholar’s achievements this summer with an online recognition program.
