Presidential Scholars of Hickman High School

The United States Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964 to recognize and honor some of the nationís top graduating high school seniors. Each year, as many as 141 students are named Presidential Scholars, one of the nationís highest honors for high school students. Every student named a Presidential Scholar
has the opportunity to meet the current president.

Hickman has had 18 students who have earned the prestigious honor, and that is more than any other public or private school in the state and places the school in the top 1 percent of schools in the country for this honor.
