  • Richmond has worked toward valedictorian goal since CCMS

    Becoming valedictorian is not just showing up for class, nor is it not deciding to buckle down during senior year to try for good grades.

    The valedictorian for Carroll County High School’s class of 2017 Jenna Richmond said she began thinking about being valedictorian when she was in middle school when she attended a function at the high school with her older brother Jae.

    “This has been a goal through all of high school,” Richmond said. “It has been a battle between me, Jenah Roberts and Taylor Courtney all four years.”
