Twenty-one FHS seniors qualified as semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship competition, and one senior qualified as a semifinalist in the National Achievement competition, which is also directed by National Merit.

University of Arkansas Chancellor Dr. David Gearhart and representatives from the UA Honors College will attend the reception and offer each of the seniors a Chancellor's Scholarship to the University of Arkansas. The parents of the students, members of the Fayetteville Board of Education, and superintendent Vicki Thomas will also attend the reception.

Twenty-one is the largest number of semifinalists ever achieved by Fayetteville High School, and it was the largest number from any high school in Arkansas this year.
