INDIANAPOLIS - High school seniors from Fort Wayne and Carmel have been selected as Presidential Scholars.
The Education Department announced this week that Abby Lemert of Carroll High School in Fort Wayne and Daniel Fu of Carmel are among this year's class of 141 Presidential Scholars. Fu attends Park Tudor School in Indianapolis.
