Kudos to the big-brained



By our count, 91 high school seniors in Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco and Hernando counties were named semi-finalists today in the National Merit Scholarship Program, with Hillsborough and King high schools leading the pack with 13 semi-finalists each. Last year, 1.4 million juniors nationwide took the PSAT/NMSQT test to qualify, and 16,000 scored high to make it on today's list . The finalists will be announced in the spring.
