Coulter Is Valedictorian of "60 Class

by Judy Bouska

"I'm very thrilled and proud of my honor," were Richard Coulter's excited words after being presented a trophy and proclaimed Valedictorian for the class of 1960, at the annual Awards Assembly, May 27.

The title of Valedictorian signifies that Richard has had the highest scholastic grade average of any of the class of 1960 students over a period of 4 years.  His average was 3.9 out of possible 4.0.
