American Heritage Schools in Broward and Palm Beach counties continue to receive top recognition for student achievement after producing the highest number of National Merit Semifinalists in Florida the 12th consecutive year. 

American Heritage School’s Broward Campus earned the No. 1 spot in Florida and the No. 2 private school in the nation for the highest number of National Merit Scholars Semifinalists. The school’s Palm Beach County campus received the No. 1 ranking in Palm Beach County, No. 2 in Florida and No. 5 private school. 

Their combined students from both campuses comprise 9% of all National Merit Scholars Semifinalists throughout Florida’s 2,227 public and private schools. 

Out of a total of 50,000 students who were recognized as high scorers, 51 seniors in the Class of 2022 have been named National Merit Scholars Semifinalists by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC)®. The 51 students comprised 9% of all National Merit Scholars Semifinalists throughout Florida’s 2,227 public and private schools. Additionally, 38 seniors received National Commended Scholar status.

“I am so proud of the hard work and dedication of our students,” says Elise Blum, a high school principal for the Broward campus of American Heritage.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
