"National Honor Roll inductees have demonstrated exceptional academic achieve-ment and are considered to be among the top students in the state," said Johnson.
"I am proud that so many of South Dakota's students are being nationally recognized for their academic excellence."
Each year the National Honor Roll program honors exemplary students from across the country. To qualify, middle or high school students must earn a B or higher average. Extra curricular activities are also considered. This year, 547 South Dakota students were honored with induction.
