Eight Cherokee County area high school seniors were recently named 2013 National Merit semifinalists.

Cherokee's class of 2013 bested last year's graduating class, which had a total of seven semifinalists. Of that number, only three were enrolled in a school in Cherokee's district. The remaining four were in private school or homeschooled in Cherokee.
