Southern Wells Valedictorian

Southern Wells announces their Valedictorian, Salutatorian

Three members of the Southern Wells High School Class of 2007 graduated Sunday with grade point averages of 4.0 or better, with the recognition of class valedictorian gong to Shawn Longenberger.

Salutatorian honors were bestowed upon Joshua Lavanchy, while Casey Carroll finished with the third-highest academic average.

And what is it that Norwell does anymore?  If I remember correctly, the words 'Valedictorian' and 'Salutatorian' are too difficult, the concept of someone achieving more than anyone else is too divisive for the eighteen-year-old Norwell students to handle.  Why they still give out trophies and ribbons to the athletes is beyond me.
