Wyoming Department of Education > Superintendent's Update > Hats Off To All 2019 Graduates

Dear Superintendents,

Hats off to all 2019 graduates at every level!

This week recipients of the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program were named. The program honors the nation’s top-performing students and was expanded in 1979 to recognize students who demonstrate exceptional talent in the visual, literary and performing arts. In 2015, the program was again expanded to recognize students who demonstrate ability and accomplishment in career and technical education fields.

Congratulations to this year’s Wyoming Presidential Scholars:

  1. Lillian Brazil, Jackson – Jackson Hole High School
  2. Scott Nicholas Orton, Afton – Star Valley High School


Former State Superintendent Judy Catchpole received an honorary doctorate from the University of Wyoming.
