BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Two Alabama students have been named as 2023 U.S. Presidential Scholars.

This is the 59th class of U.S. Presidential Scholars of high school seniors who have been recognized for their accomplishments in academics, arts, career and technical education fields, as well as a demonstrated commitment to community service and leadership.

According to the Department of Education, more than 5,000 students qualified for the award and only 161 were selected. The Presidential Scholars are comprised of one male student and one female from each state.

The Alabama scholars are Stanley Stoutamire Jr. from John Carroll High School and Sophia Li from Mountain Brook High School.

“Both John Carroll and Prince of Peace are so proud of Stanley, joining with his family and friends to congratulate him on this momentous achievement,” said President Father Jon Chalmers of John Carroll High School. “Stanley is an exemplar of the benefits of Catholic educational priorities of forming the whole person, mind, body, and spirit. We are so excited to see what he does next!”
