Douglas County School District is celebrating 21 students who have been named National Merit Scholarship Finalists, making them part of an elite group representing less than 1 percent of U.S. high school seniors. These academically talented students advance in the competition, which awards 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $33 million.
