Being at the top of his class is something that Normandy High School senior Tyrice Jenkins has experienced for quite a while. As a student in the former Wellston School District, Jenkins was the academic frontrunner, maintaining the number one spot as a freshman, sophomore and junior. However, when the Wellston School District closed and students were assigned to the Normandy School District, Jenkins was not sure if he would maintain his claim as the class’ highest academically ranked student.
“I maintained the strong work ethic I had previously established, continued applying myself and made a commitment to always do my best,” said Jenkins. “I am very proud of what I’ve accomplished and honored to be named valedictorian.”
