Following in her older sister's footsteps, Brittani Oglesbee has worked her way to the top of her graduating class, finishing as valedictorian with a 5.43 GPA. Oglesbee worked hard to keep her grades up, but never really knew that she would graduate valedictorian.

“There is a lot of competition in my grade, so I feel honored to be valedictorian,” she said.

Oglesbee said her favorite classes throughout high school were Journalism and English.

“I had Mrs. [Kathie] Maciel all four years, first for Pre-AP English I and then Journalism,” she said. “She was a great teacher and I loved her class.”

The top student also loved having Theresa Matthews as her Pre-AP English II teacher, saying she was “one of the best teachers I have every had throughout my time in Fairfield schools.”

Last week, students brought their parents to the library on a special Book Mobile bus, which shuttled 1st through 5th grades over from their campuses. Pictured is Library Director Gary Wiggins enjoying a book with author Anna Allen.
