Tampa Bay racks up 89 National Merit scholars
The Tampa Bay area racked up 89 National Merit Scholarship winners this year, including 76 from traditional public schools. Widely considered to be the best-and-brightest academic All Stars, this year's winners include 26 from Pinellas, 56 from Hillsborough, six from Pasco and one from Hernando.
Since early April, the National Merit Scholarship Corp. has released four separate lists of winners, the latest coming out this morning. Instead of dribbling out the lists one by one, The Gradebook rounded them up so you can see them all at once. They're attached below.
