Ogilvie Named 2005 Presidential Scholar

July 1, 2005

In 2005, for the second year in a row, a Punahou student was named as one of the nation's 20 most distinguished graduating high school seniors who demonstrate exceptional talent in the visual, creative and performing arts.

Julia Ogilvie, Class of 2005, was named for her outstanding dramatic talent. Many may recognize her from the Dillingham Stage, as Madame Thernadier in Les Miserables or Annie Sullivan in The Miracle Worker.

Julia selected Theatre Department Director Paul Palmore as her most influential teacher at Punahou. The two of them travelled to Washington D.C. in June for National Recognition Week, which included a performance by the Arts Scholars.

Julia's talent has been shared well beyond Punahou's stages. In 2004, she placed third in the National Shakespeare Competition in New York. Local theater-goers have also enjoyed her performances.

The Presidential Scholar in the Arts Program selects 20 students nationally in addition to the 2 students per state named as Presidential Scholars.
