A time-honored tradition? Not all schools subscribe to valedictorian honor

“I believe some schools are getting rid of the title because it is losing respect. I have seen that even at Mingus. I see immense respect from the public, but it is not always shown the same respect in school. I believe this directly ties into the competition.”
-- John Valentine, Mingus Union High School Valedictorian (left)
“You should be learning and growing. I completely understand why schools have done away with it.”
