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.
