    Should have valedictorians! I was mine for my HS and two of my sons were for theirs! Straight A record is not just ” high grade recognition!” Those high but not perfect are honor students and get listed on program! This is a continuation of the mentality don’t reward excellence as it might hurt somebody’s feelings who gets no. Reward! Tough luck!
