It is time to announce the top students of the Spring 2018 Graduating Class!


portrait photo of Zoe Ann 2018 CHS valedictorianOur 2018 Valedictorian is Zoe Ann C., the daughter of Bill and Cynthia. Zoe has been active in theatre since the fifth grade and has been a valuable member of the high school's theatre department since her freshman year. Not only has she been in twenty-two productions, but she has also been serving in leadership positions. She is currently the president of both the theatre department and the thespian troop.

Zoe was inducted into the National Honor Society at the end of her sophomore year, and she has been a member of the Castleberry High School Band since her freshman year. Last year she participated in the color guard, and when the band went to state the color guard team placed second. This year Zoe has served as captain of the color guard.

As a child Zoe dreamed of traveling the world someday and helping people. In August, she will start making that dream come true at Austin College in Sherman where she plans to double major in international relations and international economics and minor in theatre and French. After she gets her bachelor's degree she wants to move to Washington, D.C. and get her master's degree at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.

Zoe is greatly inspired by her mom. She describes her mother as "One of the smartest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing."

Rachel has been a valuable member of the high school's cross country team since her freshman year and the track team since her sophomore year. When she was a freshman, she won the Lady Lionheart award in cross country.

Rachel was inducted into the National Honor Society in the Spring of 2015, and she has played french horn for the Castleberry High School Band since her freshman year. She is part of the honors band and has made all-region the past two years. She was also part of the UIL State Marching Band last year.

When Rachel was five years old she visited the Air Force Academy with her family. Years later when she started thinking about what she wanted to do with the rest of her life she thought about how much fun it would be to travel the world. Upon remembering her trip to the Air Force Academy she realized that she wanted to apply to one of the United States Service Academies. She eventually found her calling at the Merchant Marine Academy, and on June 29th she will begin her first day of Indoctrination in Kings Port, New York. She hopes to get her Bachelor of Science in Marine Transportation, graduate with a U.S. Coast Guard 3rd Mate license, and serve as an officer in the U.S. Merchant Marines.
