A graduating senior from Creekview High School is among this year’s U.S. Presidential Scholars, the U.S. Department of Education announced.

Ty Anthony Hubert of Creekview is one of three Presidential Scholars from Georgia, among 161 recipients across the country.

“Our 2022 Presidential Scholars represent the best of America, and remind us that when empowered by education, there are no limits to what our young people can achieve,” U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona said in a statement. “Today, I join President Biden to celebrate a class of scholars whose pursuit of knowledge, generosity of spirit, and exceptional talents bring our nation tremendous pride. Throughout one of the most trying periods in our nation’s history and amid our recovery from the pandemic, our students have once again demonstrated their strength and that they have so much to contribute to our country. Thanks to them, I know America’s future is bright.”

Hubert serves as his school’s student delegate to the Cherokee County School Board, and as Student Government Association class president, captain of the varsity football team and varsity lacrosse team, and president of the Rho Kappa National Social Studies Honor Society. He also plays on the school’s wrestling team. Additionally, Hubert is a member of the National Honor Society and Beta Club, earned the AP Scholar Award and was twice nominated for Governor’s Honors. A Mu Alpha Theta school math tutor and Fellowship of Christian Athletes group leader, the Creekview senior also volunteers for House of Hope and Goshen Valley Boy’s Ranch.

“Ty is an incredibly impressive student and leader, and we’re so proud to see him recognized nationally for his dedication to excellence,” Cherokee County School District Superintendent Brian Hightower said in a statement. “This award is truly well-earned, as Ty has put in the work: in academics, athletics, school involvement and community service. Congratulations to Ty, his family, his teachers and coaches and everyone who has supported his success, as I know you are just as excited for him. We are fortunate as a nation that he has chosen a military service academy for his next chapter, and we wish him all the best.”

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 a demonstrated commitment to community service and leadership.

As directed by Presidential Executive Order, the 2022 U.S. Presidential Scholars are comprised of one young man and one young woman from each state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, and U.S. families living abroad, as well as 15 chosen at-large, 20 scholars in the arts and 20 scholars in career and technical education.

The Presidential Scholars Class of 2022 will be recognized for their outstanding achievement this summer with an online recognition program.
