Schools hope to keep momentum, increase prestigious scholarship applicants

Two local high schools have a record number of finalists for a national scholarship honor.

Greenwood Community High School and Greenwood Christian Academy also each had one student qualify as a finalist, meaning all of Johnson County’s semifinalists advanced to the next round as finalists.
