Presidential Scholars Nomination

Medway Public Schools is very proud of Ariya Ahona on being selected by the Commissioner to move on to the second stage in the US Presidential Scholars Program.  “It was our pleasure to honor her with nomination to the Commissioner’s Office” says Dorothy Pearl, Dean of Student Services.

Ariya Ahona has been selected by Commissioner Riley to represent the state as one of the nominees for the U.S. Presidential Scholars from Massachusetts.

After we nominated Ariya and submitted her essay, and our required information to the staff of the Massachusetts Department of the Elementary and Secondary Education for review, she was selected with a group of students. These students were presented to Commissioner Riley. 

Commissioner Riley selected Ariya to be advanced to the second stage where the national program review committee will review all nominees from all states. Students selected from that review process will advance to a final competition in early spring and will be invited by the Presidential Scholars Program to complete a more detailed application.  The Presidential Scholars will be selected from that finalist group.  


The U.S. Presidential Scholars committee statedWe are very impressed with Ariya's qualifications and are proud to have her represent Massachusetts in this prestigious competition”.
