Secretary Bunting Names Top High School Seniors 2021 Secretary Scholars

Secretary of Education Susan Bunting has honored 90 public school students from the Class of 2021 as Secretary of Education Scholars. The two seniors from Seaford High School honored are Jessica Castro-Sandoval and Nicholas Phillips.

While the Delaware Department of Education was unable to host its traditional banquet to honor the scholars due to COVID-19 restrictions, the scholars are being recognized on a website ( to showcase their outstanding achievements.

"These seniors have accomplished much during their high school careers. Their outstanding academic achievements and leadership records both in and out of the classroom are extremely impressive," Bunting said. "They have persevered even though COVID-19 forced them to learn and work differently. They have succeeded due to their hard work and the support of their families and educators. Graduation marks not an ending but a new beginning for these students, who will now embark on college, military service and/or their chosen careers. Congratulations to these students and those whose support enabled them to achieve so much.”

The state has named Secretary of Education Scholars every year since 1984.

The number of scholars from each school is based on enrollment. Principals select the students based on both their academic records and community service. The website includes photographs, principal nomination statements and student narrative statements as submitted by the schools.
