Zachary Gold, a Scarsdale resident who attends Ardsley High School, was recently honored as a presidential scholar.

Gold is one of only 161 students nationwide and six in New York to receive the award from the Department of Education.

"I congratulate this year's class of Presidential Scholars for their devotion to academic excellence and their parents and teachers who have guided them along the way,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. “Today's Presidential Scholars are tomorrow's leaders, and I am confident they will continue to be shining examples as they enter the next phase of their academic careers.”

The White House Commission on Presidential Scholars selects scholars annually based on their academic success, artistic excellence, essays, school evaluations and transcripts, as well as evidence of community service, leadership, and demonstrated commitment to high ideals.

A ceremony will be held on June 18 and Gold will receive a Presidential Scholar Medallion.
