Washington D.C.
(June 2010): On Monday, June 21, arts patrons and education supporters gathered at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts for a VIP cocktail reception and performance in celebration of the 2010 U.S. Presidential Scholars. Earlier that day, 141 of the nation's brightest young scholars, including twenty YoungArts finalists, were officially named U.S. Presidential Scholars in a highly anticipated White House ceremony. These select students were presented a Presidential Medallion by President Obama, awarding them the highest honor bestowed on the nation's graduating high school seniors by the U.S. Department of Education and The Commission on Presidential Scholars.

In addition to being named Presidential Scholars in the Arts, the twenty YoungArts finalists exhibited their work at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and performed at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts; in celebration of the impressive group of 2010 U.S. Presidential Scholars.

The reception included an incredible performance by violinist Sandy Cameron, a YoungArts Alumna and Harvard University graduate. Notable guests included famed dancer/choreographer and 1986 YoungArts Alumnus and Presidential Scholar Desmond Richardson, President of Miami-Dade College, Eduardo J. Padrón, NEA Chairman Rocco Landesman, NEA Senior Deputy Chairman Joan Shigekawa, Izette Folger, Ginny Mancini, Commissioner Marian McCarthy, Richard Koshalck, Lin Arison, Sarah Arison, documentary filmmaker Ali Codina and Michael Maccoby.
