Lewisville ISD (LISD) is proud to announce 47 high school seniors were recently named finalists in the National Merit Scholarship Program (NMSP).
“We are extremely proud of the 47 students who have earned this prestigious honor. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication our students, staff members and parents, who have supported them throughout their educational careers,” LISD Superintendent Dr. Kevin Rogers said.
