Stillwater Area High School senior James Wagner was among just 16,000 high school students from across the country named a National Merit Finalist. Each year about 1.6 million students apply, but only one percent of them are recognized for their academic accomplishments. Wagner was one of 1,000 finalists awarded a corporate-sponsored National Merit Scholarship. He received $2,500 from W.W. Grainger, Inc., which he will apply towards tuition at the University of Minnesota.
