This year's Valedictorian from Gordonsville High School is Miss Rachel Gentry. U can't really say enough about her. She has played varsity basketball and softball, where she has started for all four years and played varsity volleyball for two years. Rachel excelled in all of these sports. She was the 2005 J.L. Bass Memorial MVP in basketball and the 2005 MVP in volleyball....softball season has only begun, who knows what else lies ahead! Rachel is one of these people that u don't come across very often..(and i'm not only saying this b/c she's my cousin! thumb ). She will truly be missed around the halls of GHS after graduation!!!

Ben Thompson graduated from Alcoa last year as valedictorian, he had a 35 on his act and was and lettered 4 years in wrestling and soccer, and was a captain for 2 years. He now attends Annapolis Naval Academy on a full ride. He was Mr. Alcoa and for good reason, he is one of the most achieving student athletes i have seen.

He has his on thread on the football board, but I thought I would mention him here. Wilson Cates is at the top when it comes to student athletes. He is a great role model and a great Christian. He his also a great student. The last I heard he was right at a 4.0 and I think he wants to be a doctor. And I am sure everyone knows how good of an athlete he is.
