“Concerns about depression, anxiety and suicidal ideations have led Mason High School to do away with a class valedictorian and salutatorian starting in the 2019-2020 school year.”
Citing concerns about student mental health, a high school in Ohio decided to do away with valedictorian and salutatorians.
“The class of 2020 at Mason High School will not have a valedictorian or salutatorian and will move to the Latin Honors System in an effort to reduce stress and anxiety among students, school officials announced this week,” reports WJLA.
The Latin Honors System is used by colleges and universities and includes designations of summa cum laude, magna cum laude and cum laude. Junior Judi Hu currently has a GPA of 4.5 and isn’t concerned about the elimination of valedictorian and salutatorian.
“I think there’s only a couple of people trying for that. Usually, there’s only three or four,” Hu said of the valedictorian and salutatorian slots.
