Raylynn Thompson says a stranger once told her black people couldn't be valedictorians but now she's graduating top of her class and has been accepted to 64 college. "I know the importance of education and where it can take me. A lot of times it would be 5 sitting in the mailbox and I would just be like one of these has to be fake, one of them has to be a denial and they never were" says Raylynn.
College is an accomplishment Raylynn has been working towards since she was a little girl. Now, here she is crossing the finish line and we're making sure to celebrate her amazing accomplishments.
Congrats Raylynn! Great job.
