Lubbock ISD is home to 11 semifinalists, more than Abilene (3), Amarillo (4), Midland (0), Odessa (0) and San Angelo (2) combined. Of the approximate 1.5 million students taking the qualifying exam, LISD had three more students earn the prestigious designation this year than last.

The Semifinalist from Coronado High School is Taylor Reasoner. The Semifinalists from Lubbock High School are: Raleigh Anderson, Stephen Berg, Midora DuBose, Christine Kobza, Alexander Martinelli, Waverly Roeger, Bethany Rolan, Ruvinee Senadheera, Samuel Whittlesey and Yu Tong Zhang.
