Rutschke named scholar semifinalist
Superintendent of Public Instruction Kirsten Baesler has announced that six North Dakota high school seniors were named as semifinalists in the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program.
Being named as a Presidential Scholar is one of the most distinguished academic honors a high school student can attain.
The semifinalists include Casondra J. Rutschke, of Zeeland, a graduate of Zeeland High School. Rutschke plans to attend North Dakota State University to study business administration and marketing.
The North Dakotans are part of a group of 565 semifinalists chosen by the U.S. Commission on Presidential Scholars. The commission identified more than 4,300 high school seniors as potential candidates, out of 3.3 million seniors nationwide.
One man and one woman from the group of six North Dakota semifinalists will be chosen as the state’s Presidential Scholars for 2015. They and other scholars from across the country will be honored at a recognition program in Washington, D.C., in late June.
