Editorial: Excellence


Four of the seven high schools in Montgomery - Lamp, Carver, BTW and Brewbaker Tech - and two in Autauga County - Billingsley and Autaugaville - ranked in the top 9% of all high schools in America in a recent U.S. News and World Report survey.

Loveless Academic Magnet Program High School was rated best in the state and 25th best in the nation, of more than 21,000 high schools.

An outstanding honor for our area schools and another indicator that improvement continues to accelerate.

Carver's academic achievements parallel their athletic achievement, as they just completed perhaps their finest football season in their 60 year history, winning 13 games.

Kudos as well to Prattville High School, celebrating an unprecedented third consecutive state football championship.

The dedication and focus of the students at these high schools is championship caliber.

We commend you and all associated with helping you achieve.
