Wellesley senior named Presidential Scholar

Posted by Martin Finucane May 3, 2007 02:17 PM


A local high school student was named a 2007 Presidential Scholar, the highest achievement for graduating seniors that the federal government gives, the Globe reports.

Mari K. Oye, a Wellesley High School senior, assembled a project that organized fund-raisers for social issues affecting Afghanistan. She also participated in the school's cross-country running and skiing teams.

Of the 3 million students expected to graduate high school this year, only 2,700 qualified for the program.
