Caroline Schneider, a straight-A student at The Weber School, will be honored as valedictorian at the school’s June 7 graduation. While students and their families remain in their parked cars, Schneider will deliver her speech on a stage with a personal microphone.
“Following the speeches, my classmates and I are going to have the opportunity to walk across the stage and collect our diplomas while abiding by social distancing practices (staying 6 feet apart).”
Schneider plans to attend the University of Georgia as a Foundation Fellow and major in political science with minors in criminal justice and Spanish. “I am very interested in going to law school after I finish my undergraduate studies,” she said.
During high school, she was involved in Mock Trial, Peace by Piece, Peer Leadership, the tennis team, and she volunteered at the Atlanta Speech School.
Schneider was also president of her school’s chapter of the National Honor Society, a finalist for the Georgia Governor’s Honors Program in social studies in 2018, and the STAR student for her graduating class.
