High School announces top 10 seniors

Minutes after the start of second period on Oct. 30, High School Principal Linda Carter made a surprise announcement of the top 10 seniors of the Class of 2015.

Carter requested that each student come to the guidance suite from their classes for personal congratulations from Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kishore Kuncham, school faculty and counselors.

“Your dedication and commitment to hard work have made us all so proud of you,” Dr. Kuncham said.

The names of the seniors were announced in order from 10 to 3, and the revelation of salutatorian and valedictorian followed. The announcement of each student’s name was met with cheers and celebrations throughout the school in the students’ classrooms.

The Class of 2015’s valedictorian and salutatorian are Mohdshobair Hussaini and Lois Evans, respectively. Students rounding out the top 10 are Monique Simmon, Rachel Julian, Nicolle Salazar, Lynda Tinglin, Brian Abreu-Tejada, Champ LaRocca, Mariela Carvajal and Ashley Grissom.

The Board of Education and faculty extends its warmest congratulations to the high-achieving seniors and wishes each of them continued success in the future.
