"The Class of 2013," a special 12-page section in today's print editions of The Daily Gazette, highlights the accomplishments, hopes and dreams of the top graduating students at 38 area high schools.
Valedictorians and salutatorians are asked questions ranging from "What makes you unique?" to "Who or what inspires you?" to "What's in your music player?"
The answers, many of which may surprise you, provide a quick profile of these young scholars and what makes them tick. Once you read one profile, you'll want to read the rest. To access the full section, click HERE.
Along with the profiles are a half-dozen feature stories focusing on students from Schenectady, Gloversville, Fort Plain, Amsterdam, Scotia-Glenville and Ballston Spa.
