Class Valedictorian Never Missed One Day Of School In Her Life

Ashanti Palmer was not only her class valedictorian, but also had perfect attendance from pre-K through high school β€” that’s more than 4,600 days.

The achievement β€œwasn't something that I sought out," Palmer said. "I knew that showing up to school every day was important, because even missing one day can set you back."

Palmer received over $400,000 in scholarships and is attending Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York, where she plans to pursue a degree in biomedical engineering and medicine on a pre-med track.
