May 16--  It's high school graduation weekend and the students who have done the best in the past four years are getting special recognition.

The valedictorian this year at Vidalia High School is Jillian Davis.  In her case, it's a family tradition.

Image"My sister was valedictorian and my brother was ranked three.  It feels really good to be up there with them.  I absolutely wouldn't be where I am today without my family, especially my Mom, and I don't know what I'd do without her.' she says.

Jillian is going to Presbyterian College in South Carolina to study pre-med.

Her runner-up is salutatorian Trace Calloway who's headed to the honors program at the University of Georgia.  He says, "Vidalia has been great.  I've been very involved and it's been a lot of fun with a lot of great teachers.  The school has a great educational system with a lot of advanced placement classes and a lot of chances to explore and learn whatever you want to learn."

The Indian Class of 2013 graduates Friday night at 7:30 at Buck Cravey Field.

The valedictorian at Montgomery County High School is Chloe Clark who's going to study at UGA enroute to medical school.

Image"I put a lot of hard work into it.  It means a lot and I've had a lot of great competition like Raysean who was right behind me.  It means a lot to graduate with these great people.   We're a very close class and if one of us was down someone is always there to help them back up," she says.

The Eagle salutatorian is Raysean Ricks.

"It kind of came natural, except these last two years I had to study harder because classes were more difficult and I had to work for it," he says.

Raysean is going to Augusta State and wants to be a registered nurse.

He also advises incoming freshmen to take that first year of high school seriously and use the time to get prepared to make better grades in the coming years.

The Eagles graduate Friday night at eight o'clock at Brogdon Field in Mount Vernon.
