Syosset Senior Sabrina Guo Recognized as U.S. Presidential Scholar

Syosset Senior Sabrina Guo is being recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a 2023 U.S. Presidential Scholar. Sabrina is one of only 161 expected high school graduates nationwide selected for this high honor.

Application to become a Presidential Scholar is by invitation only by the U.S. Department of Education’s Commission on Presidential Scholars, and candidates are selected based on their superior academic and artistic achievements, leadership qualities, strong character, and involvement in the community

“Sabrina’s dedication to both her academic studies and our community is unmatched. She is truly deserving of this distinguished recognition,” said Dr. Thomas Rogers, Syosset Superintendent of Schools. “We are so inspired by her work ethic and honored to have her as a member of our student body. We can’t wait to see all she will accomplish as she moves on to her next chapter.”

The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964 by Executive Order of the President to recognize excellence in education and to honor some of the nation’s most distinguished graduating high school seniors. Roughly 5,000 students nationwide apply, but only 161 are named presidential scholars. The Presidential Scholars Class of 2023 will be recognized for their outstanding achievement this summer with an online recognition program.
