'Amazing' Pine Bush student is Harvard-bound

When she was a 2-year-old with pigtails and yellow barrettes, Rachel Byrd was so loquacious, her pediatrician called her "Dr. Byrd." After all, her mom, Leslie, swears Rachel could speak in full sentences when she was one.

If only she earned it based on her own merit rather than because her mother went there, then her parents would not have to pay to have an article of her put into the news paper and put false facts about her into it

If you think she deserved this you are all severely mistaken. She was number 3 in the class, last time I checked that was not number 1. She barely did any community service, only when forced to for her IB diploma, which she had to do extra the last quarter because she did not have enough, her standardized test scores were below average and she was not very liked by the student body, let alone the faculty of the school. Her graduating class has a very low GPA to start with. Last years top ten all had above a 99 GPA. this years number 1 had a 98, number 2, a 97 and number three a whopping 96. Rachel Byrd, the 'Amazing' student, would have been number 47 in last years class. She did not do anything amazing to say the least
