Posted 7/22/19

Spencer Favor could not have had a better senior year at Airline High School and will stroll across stage at graduation May 18 knowing she reached the pinnacle of her academic career.

The National Merit Scholarship Corporation announced earlier this month Favor is a National Merit Scholarship winner, one of only 2,500 designees selected from more than 15,000 finalists in the running for the honor.

This year’s National Merit Scholarship Program began in October 2017 when over 1.6 million juniors throughout the nation took a test as part of an initial screening. Favor made the cut and became one of 16,000 Semifinalists who then made it to the Finalist level of the competition.

Not only is Favor receiving the $2,500 National Merit Scholarship, but she also accepted a full ride to the University of Alabama amounting to a nearly $200,000 scholarship package in recognition of her academic excellence.

Bossier Schools extends its congratulations to Favor for being named a National Merit Scholarship winner and wishes her success at the University of Alabama.
