Utah Student Awarded U.S. Presidential Scholar
EAGLE MOUNTAIN, Utah — An Eagle Mountain high school student has received one of the nation’s top academic awards — the U.S. Presidential Scholar.
Students at Cedar Valley High School gave a round of applause to fellow student Nathan Ford after he was notified of the win.
They even rolled out some Chick-fil-A for the celebration.
“I’ve worked really hard these last years, and I think it’s pretty awesome that I got to be recognized with this award,” said Ford.
Ford was one of 161 students in the nation to get the award.
In the summer, they will all travel to the White House to get their awards and bask in the top honor.
Ford has plans to attend BYU in the fall.
