Valedictorian Zoee Robbins addresses her classmates with words of encouragement. Robbins edged out three other contenders for the title of valedictorian. The numbers were so close, that the final determination was made in the final week before graduation. Principal Dr. Linden Moore explained that with the weighted grades, there were four students who stood a chance to earn valedictorian. Multiple honors courses are options for their junior and/or senior years. Some students take more in the junior year than in the senior year. Others do the opposite. He said they were all excellent students who worked incredibly hard for their grades and ended up with the GPA they have because of the order they took their classes.
