Recognizing valedictorians and salutatorians has been a part of Pasco County school graduations for as long as anyone can remember. Recently, as some other area school districts move to change how they recognize top students, the Pasco County School Board has moved to eliminating the valedictorian and salutatorian distinctions. Neither of these distinctions serves as an end-all--and being valedictorian or salutatorian does not ensure future success--but they both help to honor the work of a given school's top two students. In a world that is now sadly hesitant of recognizing success, of making any distinction between those who have triumphed and those who have not, it is important that we let the Pasco County School Board know that the citizens of Pasco County do not stand behind the removal of some our most cherished school traditions.
If you agree that the Pasco County School Board should NOT eliminate the valedictorian and salutatorian distinctions, please sign this petition.
