Siddharth Nareddy, a senior at the Boulder Valley School District’s Peak to Peak Charter School, is one of two Colorado students named as a 2024 U.S. Presidential Scholar.

The White House Commission on Presidential Scholars selects scholars annually through essays, school evaluations and transcripts, as well as a demonstrated commitment to community service and leadership. More than 5,700 candidates qualified for the 2024 awards because of outstanding performance on the College Board SAT or ACT exams or through nominations. 

Presidential Scholars are selected as two students from each state, as well as 15 at-large scholars, 20 in the arts and 20 in career and technical education. Altogether, only 161 high school seniors across the country were recognized this year for their accomplishments in academics, the arts and career and technical education.

Following graduation, Nareddy is enrolling at Brown University to pursue degrees in Biomedical Engineering and Public Policy in the university’s Program of Liberal Medicine, an 8-year program that combines undergraduate courses with medical school. 

Aside from his impressive college pursuits, Nareddy has also been an active member of Peak to Peak’s Ethics Bowl team (which placed 10th in the nation this year), the school’s Asian Student Union, National Honor Society, Computer Science Honor Society, and will receive a Seal of Biliteracy endorsement on his BVSD diploma. 

This school year, Nareddy was also selected as one of two students in Colorado to represent the state as part of the U.S. Senate Youth Program. He traveled to Washington D.C. in March where he shadowed the Colorado Senators and met with federal policy officials.
