GPA even higher

Last week, I told you about an award received by Alexandra Faulkner at Boonsboro Middle School. Turns out she is even more exemplary than we thought.

Her academic average has been at 97 percent all the way through grades six, seven and eight. I wrote that her grade-point average is 3.6, and although GPAs are not officially tracked in middle school, Alexandra's would be closer to a 3.9.

Keep up the good work, Alexandra.
