Boyd names valedictorian
Placeholder Image

Hunter Hobbs has attended Boyd Christian School since pre-K and will graduate from Boyd in May as class valedictorian.
 When asked if he will miss the only school he has ever known, Hobbs said, “I haven’t been away from it enough to know, but I am sure I will get used to it. I still plan on keeping up with my close friends after we graduate,” said Hobbs.
Hobbs will graduate No. 1 in the class of 2014 in a ceremony scheduled for Thursday, May 22, at Central Church of Christ. This year’s senior class has eight students.
Parker Warren is the class salutatorian. He, too, came to Boyd at an early age, as a kindergartner.
Warren said, “I am ready to be on my own and start something new with my life. But, on the other hand, I am going to miss my friends and teachers.”
When asked who their favorite teacher was, Hobbs said, “Probably Mr. Perry or Ms. McVey. She taught math but doesn’t teach here anymore. She taught me many life lessons. I like the way Mr. Perry teaches. He makes English easy to understand. The way he puts it is the way he wants us to learn it.”
Warren, too, named Mr. Perry as a favorite teacher. “He teaches high school English. I really like the way he teaches and connects with students. He teaches very well.”
Hobbs said the ability to make good grades in school comes naturally to him but being No. 1 in his class was something he always wanted.
“I lot of good people from here have been named valedictorian. It is something I wanted to do,” said Hobbs.
Warren said, “I was not aiming for the top. But, I always tried to keep my grades up. It is very nice to be named salutatorian.”
Hobbs said he is undecided about his future. “I might major in something to do with history. But, my thoughts on that change. I plan on completing my first two years of college at Motlow and then study for two years at Lipscomb,” he said.
Warren has not nailed down a college major either. “I enjoy English. I may decide to do something with that. But, I am not 100 percent sure yet. I am planning on attending Tennessee Tech,” said Warren.
