Niagara Falls drops class rankings for today's graduation

   There will be no valedictorian at today's Niagara Falls High School graduation.

   As Niagara Correspondent Caitlin Murray reports in today's Buffalo News, 18 students will graduate instead with valedictory honors.

   “We felt it was nice to recognize a valedictorian, but those other kids were so close,” said James Spanbauer, head of Niagara Falls High School. “We’re talking hundredths of a point sometimes. We felt they were all deserving.” 

   Niagara Falls is the first district in Niagara County to do away class rankings and naming a valedictorian.
