Holodick Names Top High School Seniors 2022 Secretary Scholars

Secretary of Education Mark Holodick has honored 89 public school students from the Class of 2022 as Secretary of Education Scholars.


The scholars are being recognized on a website (2022 Delaware Secretary of Education Scholars – Delaware Department of Education)  to showcase their outstanding achievements.


“I am so impressed by the accomplishments of these seniors,” Holodick said. “During their high school careers they have persevered through school building closures, remote learning, hybrid learning and the transition back to fulltime face-to-face instruction. They have succeeded due to their hard work and the support of their families and educators. Not only have they earned high academic accolades, they are leaders in their schools, athletic teams and communities. Many have balanced impressive class schedules and extracurricular calendars with part-time jobs and volunteer service. These are just the type of leaders our state needs.”


The state has named Secretary of Education Scholars every year since 1984.


The number of scholars from each school is based on enrollment. Principals select the students based on both their academic records and community service. The website includes photographs, principal nomination statements and student narrative statements as submitted by the schools.
