I just think it is wrong that a student cannot qualify for Valedictorian, Salutatorian, or Historian unless they have been in this particular school for the entire 9-12th grade years.. personally I am a sophomore and this is my first year here and I do believe that I have the potential and capability of being Valedictorian, Salutatorian, or Historian of my class by the time graduation comes. Overall, I believe in this case that policy is very unfair to a student that has worked hard in highschool and continued to work hard throughout their highschool years.
