Prosper High School senior Matthew McCracken has been accepted and plans to attend Abilene Christian University in the fall. McCracken received a congratulatory letter announcing he has exhibited commitment to the highest standards of academic success, service, leadership and character, and he was named a 2017 ACU Presidential Scholarship recipient. He and fellow recipients were honored during a recognition dinner held on the ACU campus on Feb. 19, 2017.

This is the highest honor ACU bestows upon incoming freshmen. In fact, out of over 10,000 applicants, only the top 5 percent are even considered for this designation.
