sydraSydra Hade, a Broome High School senior, has been selected as one of 630 semifinalists to advance to the final round of the 2018 United States Presidential Scholars competition.  Over 5,300 students were identified as candidates in the program.  Hade is one of 13 from the state of South Carolina chosen.

The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964 by Executive Order of the President.  It recognizes students who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement, exceptional talent in the visual, creative and performing arts, and, those students who demonstrate ability and accomplishment in career and technical education fields.  

Rodney Graves, principal at Broome High School, stated, “We are so excited that Sydra Hade has been selected as semifinalist to advance to the final round of the 2018 U.S. Presidential Scholars competition.  She is the first Broome High School student to reach this level in over twenty-three years.  Sydra excels in the classroom, works outside of school and volunteers in the community.  She is always looking for ways to improve herself, our school and our community.  Broome High School is proud of Sydra and all that she has accomplished and we wish her continued success.”

The White House Commission on Presidential Scholars will now review the applications of all semifinalists.  After a review of the 630 semifinalists, up to 161 of them will be named United States Presidential Scholars.
