BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. --  Briarcliff High School’s Anastasia Friedland is just one of 10 New York State high school seniors named a U.S. Presidential Scholar finalist by Education Commissioner John B. King.

“This prestigious award recognizes students for their accomplishments in academics or the arts,” King said in a statement. “All of these nominees have demonstrated exceptional academic success and artistic excellence. They are truly the best New York has to offer.”

New York State Assemblywoman Sandy Galef nominated Friedland for the honor.

“I am thrilled that Anastasia Friedland has been recognized by Commissioner King’s office as one of five young women and five young men moving on to the national level to be considered for the Presidential Scholar Award,” Galef said in a statement. “Anastasia has a unique story of overcoming many hardships and yet persevering to meet and surpass expectations and maintain a high academic average. [She does this] as she pursues her dreams, all while continuing to give back to her community."

The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program, established in 1964, offers its honorees an expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. in June for a White House medallion ceremony.
