One  of the highest recognitions a high school senior can receive is becoming a National Merit Scholarship semi-finalist.  The current group of Alabama students to gain this honor has just been announced.  There are 215 of them, from both private and public schools.

Al.com put together a list of all these students.  You can see it here.

I attended the ceremony at Loveless Academic Magnet Program high school here in Montgomery where nine seniors were recognized.  A very, very impressive group.  Congratulations to one and all.
