Saluting Excellence: Eight Metro students are National Achievement Scholarship semifinalists

Eight Metro students have been named 2015 National Achievement Scholarship semifinalists. More than 160,000 African American high school juniors applied, but only 1% of them (1,600) we’re chosen. The National Achievement Scholarship Program was created to recognize academically promising students and support their future education.
