MANCHESTER (KMOV.com) -

Each year, up to 161 students are named as Presidential Scholars, one of the nation’s highest honors for high school students. This year, one student from Parkway South High earned this prestigious award.

Erin Neely, a graduating senior, is celebrating this incredibly rare honor.

The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964, by an executive order of the President, to recognize and honor the nation’s most distinguished graduating high school seniors.
