Two high school seniors honored

Mitchell and Tyler K. Harris, both seniors at Minnetonka High School, have been awarded $2,500 National Achievement Scholarships.

The National Achievement Scholarship Program is a privately financed academic competition established in 1964 to honor scholastically talented black American youth.

Winners were selected based on PSAT scores, high school transcript, extracurricular activities and an essay.

The twin brothers plan to attend the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and study finance.
