Congra tula tions 1980 Seniors Dill, Terrell Top of 1980 Senior Class The highest honors that any high school student could receive are the honors of be¬ ing chosen valedictorian and salutatorian. For the graduating class of 1980 this year's valedictorian is Michael Dill and his counterpart salutatorian Kevin Terrell. Webster's dictionary defines salutatorian as being ranked second in his class and who also gives the salutation at commencement exercises. Kevin Terrell was asked what it meant to him in being chosen salutatorian. In his reply he felt that he had accomplished half of his goal which he had been planning for since eighth grade. His goal was to be valedictorian. The benefits that Kevin feels he receives are recognition and the attractiveness of his transcript with "salutatorian" typed on it. One extremely controversial question was whether it was fair that Kevin was given the lower honor while taking "tougher" courses. Kevin agrees that it was fair because he feels that he had the same chance to take the same classes that Michael took, but he took the classes that he felt would help him with his major in college. Kevin's grade point average is 7.275. His plans for the future are to attend Purdue University and major in mechanical or electrical engineering. He does feel that achieving this honor will help fulfill his future plans. He states, "It will give me confidence and recognition and make me aware of my abilities which should help me next year." In selecting the valedictorian and salutatorian, counselors go by overall grades from freshman year up to senior year. A senior can be disqualified if he or she flunks a whole semester of work. The advice Kevin gives to future sophomores and upcoming freshman per¬ taining to high school is "to work hard and do the best that you possibly can because what you do in high school will affect your whole future." Michael Dill feels being chosen valedic¬ torian will give him a greater chance for success in life. He also notes that it gives one a feeling of knowing that he has ac¬ complished something. The benefits he received from the honor of being chosen was that he was able to pick his college choice. Michael does feels it fair that he was chosen over someone who took "harder" classes.
