    We’re proud of all our county’s semifinalists, especially those two from Tate. Go Aggies! Michael, we’re so proud of you. Also, it’s nice to see academics recognized for a change. This site posts story after story of student athlete accomplishments, but there are some major academic accomplishments that go unmentioned (despite info provided to NE). Let’s keep up this trend. Thank you, North Escambia!
