Presidential Scholar finalist

Robert Gordon of Menlo Park is among the 3,000 students named as candidates for becoming U.S. Presidential Scholars.

Robert, a senior at Menlo-Atherton High School, is the son of Patricia Nakache and Patrick Gordon.

The candidates were selected on several factors: their exceptional performance on either the College Board SAT or the ACT assessment, plus their essays, activities, school recommendations, and school transcripts.

Final selection of Scholars will be announced in May. Those chosen will be invited to Washington, D.C., for several days in June, where they will attend a recognition ceremony and take part in events with their elected representatives and other leading people in public life.
