Presidential Scholar Candidate Emily Keeter, daughter of Howard and Lisa Keeter, from Woodford County High School, is one of six Gatton Academy seniors who learned recently they are candidates for the 2016 United States Presidential Scholars. The White House Commission on Presidential Scholars, appointed by President Obama, selects honored scholars annually based on their academic success, artistic excellence, essays, school evaluations and transcripts, as well as evidence of community service, leadership, and demonstrated commitment to high ideals. Each year, more than 4,000 candidates are identified for the component of the program that focuses on academic achievement and based on having scored exceptionally well on the SAT or the ACT. To be eligible to be a candidate, one must be a U.S. citizen or be a legal permanent resident of the U.S., receive their high school diploma between January and August of the current program year, and have taken the ACT or SAT assessment the previous October. Centre College Molly Bohanan of Versailles and Will Schein of Midway have been named to the dean's list for the fall/winter terms at Centre College, an honor reserved for students who maintain at least a 3.60 grade point average. Bohanan is the daughter of Maria and Robert Bohanan of Versailles and is a graduate of Woodford County High School. Schein is the son of Susan Roberts and Richard Schein of Midway and is a graduate of Tates Creek Senior High School.
