Twelve students from Fulton County Schools were named as winners of the National Merit Scholarship.

Four students from Chattahoochee High School are among 12 high schoolers from the Fulton County district to win National Merit Scholarships.

Fulton County Schools last week announced the list of the 2022 winners, who will receive annual awards between $500 and $2,000 for up to four years of college studies.

The Fulton students are among more than 2,600 students to receive the recognition nationwide. The recipients are chosen partly based on their scores on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

“We are very proud of you,” said board member Linda McCain at Thursday’s board meeting.
