LCCHS Class of 2013 valedictorian A’Ja Johnson and salutatorian Rebekah Lee held a friendly competition – along with several other of their classmates – to see who would gain the honors. Both were shocked when they won it.
“I thought I was out of the running completely. If A’Ja didn’t make something I was going to be angry, especially since she took the hardest classes,” said Lee, adding the competition motivated everyone taking part to do better.
