A North Allegheny Senior High School student was named in the 50th class of Presidential Scholars, which recognizes 141 high school seniors, the U.S. Department of Education said.

Surabhi Beriwal, 18, of Marshall said Monday she plans to major in neuroscience and, possibly, economics at Duke University.

U.S. Presidential Scholars are asked to identify educators who have most influenced them. Beriwal named Advanced Placement English teacher David Morris as her most influential teacher.

The White House Commission on Presidential Scholars selects scholars based on their academic and artistic achievement, community service and other factors. More than 3,900 candidates qualified for the 2014 awards based on their performance on SAT and ACT exams, and through nominations made by chief state school officers or the National YoungArts Foundation's YoungArts competition.

Scholars receive expenses-paid trips to Washington, to accept their Presidential Scholar Medallions at a ceremony June 22.
