Two high school students in Nebraska are being singled out for their academic achievements. The U.S. Presidential Scholars award is considered one of the nation’s top honors for high school seniors — and this year, two Nebraska students have been named to the list: Emily Chen of Brownell-Talbot School in Omaha and Eric Mattson of Lincoln East High. They’re among 141 students chosen nationwide from about three-thousand applicants. The award shows they’ve demonstrated leadership and scholarship and it notes their contributions to school and community as well as accomplishments in the arts, sciences, humanities and other fields. Chen and Matson will represent Nebraska at events in Washington, D.C., in June.
