WOW thats wierd and odd... I've never heard of more than 1 valedictorian, let along 40!!!! That is just a joke. There is no reason for having a valedictorian if there is going to be 40 of them. The title is for the person who is the top of the class, and 40 people all can't be at the top.... I had a 4.0 but wasnt even close to the valedictorian who had a 4.69 (we were on a weighted scale, due to AP's)
That is rediculous.
