Four Southern Arizona high school seniors have been named Flinn Scholars.

Ian Barton of Nogales High School, Maddie Pickens of Basis Tucson North, Graham Place of Sabino High School and Carly Snyder of University High School were among the 20 students selected across the state for the honor, which recognizes high-achieving seniors who have demonstrated leadership and community service.

The scholarship package is valued at more than $100,000, covering the cost of tuition to one of the state’s three public universities, room and board, funding for international study-related travel and professional development, university faculty mentorship, and other benefits.

More than 600 high school seniors applied for the 2014 Flinn Scholarship.
