Congratulations to the Class of 2021 Top 20!

By: Rayanna Shwom

Each year, 20 High School East seniors are recognized for their hard work by being declared “The Top 20.” This means that these students are the 20 seniors with the highest cumulative weighted grade point averages (GPAs) in their senior class. This is a huge accomplishment, as there are about 450 students in the senior class, meaning these 20 students were placed in the top 4.5% of the class. For the Class of 2021, Ben Goldfried, who will be attending Duke University in the fall of 2021, was named the Valedictorian, and Kevin Hoxha was declared the Salutatorian. On behalf of the entire Thunderbird staff, congratulations to these 20 seniors for all their hard work throughout the past four years!

The Top 20 list is as follows:
