I wholly agree with not worrying about titles. That's not what it's about for me. I couldn't care one way or the other what title I get. It't more the principle of it. Things ARE backwards. That and the fact that not being officially named valedictorian causes me to not be eligible for a $4000 scholarship from USF, in which case I would have to fill out some kind of national valedictorian form. Can't fill that out if it's not "true."

I agree...He deserves the recognition from his grades not the ACT or SAT Test!!

Good Luck!!

I think it is a STUPID rule. This ruling should be made from student's grades NOT the ACT or SAT Test.

Good Luck!!

I think that the rule the school board is enforcing is utter nonsense and should be removed A.S.A.P.
If you know or have seen Adam in school lately, you can tell he's extremely depressed from this whole thing.
