Letters: How was valedictorian left out?
Being named valedictorian as a result of much hard work and support is cause to be named an all-county scholar. It escapes me as to how one can have such a high academic grade point average and yet be overlooked for such an honor.
Society often dictates that anyone can achieve their goals with hard work and determination. I ask, was this not the case with Kayla Young? How disappointing that she achieved the highest GPA at Carson High School and her efforts seemed futile.
I have no idea how scholars are chosen or who does the choosing, but clearly there was an oversight or a deliberate attempt to ignore Kayla’s hard work.
My prayer for Kayla is she succeeds in her continued efforts and reaches every goal she sets her mind to — in spite of.
Kudos to her mother for ensuring Kayla stays the course and preserver to her fullest potential.
