While schools are on an extended break due to COVID-19 and citizens are advised to maintain social distancing, a school administrator went the extra mile to tell a student that she is the valedictorian in her class in the United States.

The secondary principal at Grand Traverse Academy, Michelle Floering, visited the fastfood restaurant Culver’s, where high school senior Kaitlyn Watson worked, as seen on the school’s Facebook page last Wednesday, March 25. The educator told Watson that is the school’s top student in her batch through the drive-thru window.


“Hi Kaitlyn. So, I got you on camera because I want to announce something to you today,” Floering said. “You are GTA’s 2020 class valedictorian!”

Watson looked surprised. “I am? Oh my gosh!” she replied. “Thank you so much!”


The student jumped with joy inside the restaurant while Floering was breaking the news.

“I know we have to stay six feet away so I can’t give you a hug, but congratulations,” the administrator said. “Well deserved.”

An extended school break and social distancing did not stop Michelle Floering, Secondary principal, from finding a way to give one of our seniors some exciting news! Congratulations, Kaitlyn!#lssucharterschools #MIcharters #UpLiftTODAY #TheFive
