KY. high school get honors rankings wrong

ALEXANDRIA,KY (AP) -

A high school in northern Kentucky said it mistakenly reported incorrect student rankings resulting in the wrong students given valedictorian and salutatorian honors at their graduation in May.

Campbell County Schools Superintendent Glen Miller told The Kentucky Enquirer an employee ran the wrong report in a computer program used to calculate class rankings. Megan Rauch gave the valedictorian speech during the Campbell County High School graduation ceremony, but it should have been fellow student Christina Heilman.

Heilman instead gave a salutatorian speech, but that honor should have gone to another student, Olivia Davis.

School officials met with the students affected and apologized for the errors.
