Carrollton High Senior Named National Semifinalist


Carrollton, GA – Carrollton High School senior, Katy Duncan has been named a semifinalist in the 2015 U.S. Presidential Scholars Program, one of the highest honors for high school students. Only 13 Georgia students are among the 565 semifinalists for 2015.

“Katy represents everything that is good about Carrollton and Carrollton City Schools,” said Carrollton High Principal Dr. Mark Albertus. “She has been involved in so many things here. Katy’s accomplishments are vast. She’s been a leader with student council, been a finalist in the Governor’s Honors Program, played varsity volleyball and is a full diploma candidate in our International Baccalaureate program. She’s had quite a high school career,” Albertus concluded.

Each year, more than 3,900 candidates are identified for the academic component of the program, based on having scored exceptionally well on the SAT or ACT. To assist in the selection process, all academic and arts candidates complete and submit candidacy materials for review, including essays, self-assessments, secondary school reports and transcripts.

National finalists will be notified during the middle of June 2015.
