Marquette graduate Sujay Murali is a 2019 U.S. Presidential Scholar, one of our nation’s highest honors for high school students. Out of the 3.6 million students who graduated from high school this year, approximately 5,200 students qualified for consideration. Only 161 earned the recognition, with Murali one of two Missouri recipients. 

Murali received a proclamation from Missouri Governor Mike Parson for this accomplishment, congratulating Murali for his outstanding achievement in the areas of leadership, scholarship and contributions to education. Murali’s family traveled to Washington, D.C., to receive a Presidential Scholar Medallion.

The White House Commission on Presidential Scholars selects scholars annually based on their academic success, artistic and technical excellence, essays, school evaluations and transcripts, as well as evidence of community service, leadership and demonstrated commitment to high ideals.
