Jonathan Spratley, a student at York Comprehensive High School, has been selected as a 2011 Presidential Scholars candidate. He is among 61 South Carolina high school seniors who have been identified as candidates.
The pool consists of some 3,000 students with high SAT or ACT scores. A review committee will narrow the list to about 500 honorees in the semifinal round. About 120 students will make the final round and will be invited to an awards program this summer in Washington, D.C.
