McCall 4.0 Students to Determine Commencement Speakers


In June McCall school officials mulled the idea of eliminating its valedictorian and salutatorian honors for its high-school graduates. Then the McCall-Donnelly School District Board of Trustees decided to maintain the status quo, saluting its tops students. But now, the school's eggheads may have the final say.

This morning's McCall Star-News reports that graduation speakers at McCall-Donnelly High School will be chosen by seniors with a grade-point average of 4.0 or higher, under a new proposal considered by the board.

If approved, the changes would take effect with the Class of 2016, which would include this year's freshmen.
