Demopolis High celebrates seniors’ accomplishments
Demopolis seniors may have final exams next week, but Friday morning was a day of smiles, happy tears and proud moms and dads.
The school held its annual Senior Awards Day in a packed auditorium. The honors were many and varied and included hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships.
Braden Spiller was named the 2014 valedictorian, while Riley King is the salutatorian.
Counselor Debbie Nicholas, who will retire at the end of the school year, also announced Demopolis High’s honor line.
Those students included Spiller and King as well as the following student:
•Oscar Valdivia Gonzalez*
•La Timberly Washington
The * (asterisk) represents the top 10 percent of the senior class.
Demopolis seniors received scholarships for colleges and universities across the country, including University of Alabama, Auburn University, University of West Alabama, UAB, University of Mobile, University of South Alabama and Alabama A&M University.
