Liberty Senior Nominated for U.S. Presidential Scholarship in CTE

Liberty High School senior, Liam Beltram, was recently selected as one of five Arizona nominees for the 2020-2021 U.S. Presidential Scholars in Career and Technical Education (CTE). Beltram was selected by a review team consisting of CTE stakeholders based on evidence of academic rigor, technical competence, professional employability skills, and ingenuity and creativity. 

 

As one of the five Arizona nominees, Beltram was selected by the Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction, Kathy Hoffman, and was submitted by her office to the Commission on Presidential Scholars at the U.S. Department of Education. As a semifinalist nominee, he will be invited to apply for the National Review by the Commission on Presidential Scholars at the U.S. Department of Education. Twenty outstanding U.S. Presidential Scholars in Career and Technical Education students will be recognized in May. 

 

Beltram participated in several of Peoria Unified’s CTE programs throughout his tenure at Liberty High School, including Engineering and Air Force Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC).
