Meet the 2014 Arkansas Times Academic All-Star team

It's my favorite week of the year. This week's Arkansas Times contains our Academic All-Star Team, our 20th.

Check it out. 
You'll find mini-profiles of 20 high school seniors with sparkling records and bright futures. Plenty of people compile all-star football teams. Nobody else in Arkansas makes a comprehensive effort to focus on classroom stars.

And don't miss this. It's a where-are-they-now article on dozens of our first 380 honorees.

Wow.

Doctors, lawyers, tech wizards, non-profit do-gooders, writers, scientists, a filmmaker and more, including some teachers. The article comes with then-and-now photos.

We'll be honoring this year's winners at a ceremony this afternoon at UALR, our long-time All-Star Team sponsor, so activity on the blog could be light today.

Here, by the way, is the list of students nominated by their schools for the award.
