Ashini Modi Named US Presidential Scholar

Congratulations to CMHS Senior Ashini Modi for being selected as a 2022 US Presidential Scholar. Modi is one of three students in Louisiana to earn this prestigious honor. 


Ashini has been a leader and standout student throughout her academic career–from being named a Louisiana Student of the Year, earning a perfect 36 on the ACT, and becoming a top 300 student scientist in the National Regeneron Science Talent Search. Ashini will attend Harvard University in the fall and plans to major in physics. 


The White House Commission on Presidential Scholars selects students based on academic success, artistic and technical excellence, essays, school evaluations and transcripts, and a demonstration of commitment to community service and leadership. Since 1964, the US Presidential Scholars Program has honored over 7,900 top-performing students in the nation. The distinction is awarded annually to one young man and one young woman from each state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, as well as 15 chosen at-large, 20 scholars in the arts, and 20 scholars in career and technical education.
