Myers Park High raked in the biggest pile of academic money, while Butler topped the athletic list, according to the annual Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools tally of scholarship offers.
The district likes to keep track of the ever-growing pile of money being offered to grads as a sign that CMS students are academically attractive and competitive.
