    Salutatorian: Deja Blunt, 18

    GPA: 4.71

    PARENTS: Catrecia Pitts and Derick Blunt

    COLLEGE: University of Florida, Gainesville

    INFLUENCED BY: My mother. She was a hard worker, she encouraged me, and she always backed my decisions 100%.

    SHOUT-OUT: To Mrs. Lindsay Katz, my 10th grade English 2 Honors teacher because of the teacher-student bond we share. Even after I moved on to the next grade she still helped me with assignments when I was struggling, and motivated me to always try my best.

    BEST MEMORY: My senior basketball season because, as a team, we proved a lot of people wrong. The Varsity Lady Tornadoes won a district title under a new coach, and I made First Team All-County.

    MADE IT THROUGH: Trying to keep up with my honors and AP classes while recovering from ACL reconstruction.

    PASSION IN LIFE: Basketball, which is leading me to become an orthopedic doctor and surgeon due to recent ACL injuries.

    BEST THING I LEARNED: When someone pushes you towards something that they think is a weakness, turn it around and make the perceived weakness into a strength.

    Wonderful.
    Not good news. Need some feel good after all the negatives. Our community under attack and yet we still have our over achievers.
