May 20--  A future Army officer and a future pediatrician are the top students in the Class of 2011 at Montgomery County High School.

Alex won't have much downtime after graduation.  He starts college in about a month. 

"I'll begin school June 20th at North Georgia College and State University.  I've been accepted to the Corps of Cadets up there where I plan to pursue a degree in International Affairs.  When I graduate, I'll be commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army," he reports.

As he leaves MCHS, Alex says, "Montgomery County High School has been the absolute best.  It's my home away from home.  We are really close knit here and are like family.  We really support each other and have been together through everything," he observes.

"Even though this stuff is going on with the board and everything, we still have good teachers.  Everyone is like a family.  It has really hasn't affected us that much.  Academics are still good and it's really brought everyone together," she thinks.

Shimeka is planning on a career in medicine. "My plans are to attend Mercer University in Macon and major in Biology and become a pediatrician," she says.

Graduation at Montgomery County High School is Friday night at eight o'clock on Brogdon Field.
