Peekskill High School senior Valentina Loaiza has a GPA of 99.69, and that is only part of her many academic achievements. Valentina was recently nominated for the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program by Senator Terrence Murphy. Senator Murphy visited the high school on December 14 to present Valentina with a proclamation recognizing her academic achievements and outstanding community work. Because of her academic accomplishments and strong community service, Senator Murphy nominated Valentina for recognition as a U.S. Presidential Scholar. Valentina has since been selected as one of twenty-five New York State high school seniors nominated for the National President Scholars Program. The Presidential Scholar is one of the nation's highest honors a high school student can achieve. Every year, one young man and one young woman from each state are named Presidential Scholars.
