WCHS Grad Named Presidential Scholar
2009 Woodford County High School graduate Adam Horn has been named a Presidential Scholar. Scholars are selected based on academic achievement, personal characteristics, leadership and service activities, and an assessment of a written essay. Only 140 students across the nation, three of which were from Kentucky, were selected for this honor presented during a ceremony recently in Washington D.C. While there, the students toured museums and monuments and met government and education officials.
Lila Leatherman, also a 2009 WCHS graduate, was a semifinalist in the selection. Only one other WCHS student, 2003 graduate Dan Bach, has been named a Presidential Scholar since the program’s 1964 inception.
