Academy Senior Selected as Presidential Scholar Candidate

Wednesday, January 25, 2023

Charles Behrman, senior at the Indiana Academy, has been selected as a candidate for the United State Presidential Scholars Program! Students are chosen by their academic achievements, leadership, community and school service, and accomplishments in the arts or technical fields. Only 161 graduating students across the nation will be awarded the Presidential Scholars Medallion during the National Recognition Program later this year in June. “What Charles has accomplished at the Academy actually exceeds and far outweighs the recognition he is receiving from the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars and U.S. Department of Education by being named a candidate for this prestigious award,” says Dr. Olufowote, Director of Academic Affairs at the Indiana Academy. “Charles is the type of student that makes the Academy a better place. He has stewarded and leveraged well the academic opportunities our institution has to offer and, as one of our several non-residential students that commute daily, impressively cultivates a sense of belonging among his peers when on campus. We are certainly proud of Charles’ academic accomplishments to point but more so recognize, and boast of, the tremendous impact he’s had on our community of learners while at the Academy.”
