Two Beaufort County School District students have been named finalists in the National Achievement Scholarship Program, an academic competition established in 1964 by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation to recognize outstanding black scholars.
Bluffton High School’s Tibra Wheeler and Hilton Head Island High School’s Adrian Austin rank near the top of their high school classes in academics and leadership.
“Being named a finalist in this rigorous competition is a tremendous honor,” said Superintendent Valerie Truesdale. “It signifies that Tibra and Adrian are among the very best students in our country, and we couldn’t be prouder of their achievements.”
What it's all about. Congratulations to Tibra and Adrian, and to their instructors. Great work.
