Welcome to a tribute to the Chattanooga-area's 2018 valedictorian class.
Valedictorians from more than 55 area high schools in southeastern Tennessee and north Georgia are featured in a series of reports called Top of the Class.
Twenty Times Free Press reporters and editors have worked to assemble the reports, which represent the TFP's most ambitious tribute ever to academic excellence.
Top of the Class project highlights include:
- Color portraits of most of the valedictorians
- Feature articles highlighting some of their life stories. For example, readers will learn about one student stand-out who plays cricket and another who has been taking college-level classes since 10th grade
- Photos and survey responses from the valedictorians. Learn about their favorite quotes, for example, and their little-known claims to fame
- Bios of the honorees
