    It should be noted that Xinyi (Ann) He actually had the highest GPA in the HP Class of 2013. Ann did not attend HPHS her freshman year so was not eligible to receive the Valedictorian or Salutatorian award. She is both humble and gracious and should be recognized as the real top scholar of 2013. Ann plans to attend Stanford University in the fall.

    She may be gracious, but you’ve got some work to do. Rules are rules, and there is no reason to take away from anything these two did by calling her “the real top scholar”. They have all done HP proud.

    Perhaps the transfer credits did not meet requirements. Congratulations and best at Stanford.

    @HP2. Nothing wrong with the transfer credits. It’s the HPISD rule: Valedictorian and Salutatorian can’t be transfer students. There are good reasons for the rule.

    @XT. @HP was just making clear what the article should have: these two had the top GPA’s of all students who attended HPHS all four years. Saying “top scholars” and “leading the class” implied that the Valedictorian and Salutatorian were the top two GPA’s, period, as they are at most schools and as they are at HPHS most years.

    Congratulations to the Valedictorian and Salutatorian, and to the highest GPA in the class, and to all the graduates.

  • Certain all her transfer credits met all HP requirements. HP rule states student has to be at HPHS all 4 years to be eligible for Valedictorian and Salutatorian awards. But if Miss He’s GPA was the highest in the class than she actually can be called the real top scholar. No rule about that. At least not yet.

    Really, who is this all about … parent(s) or Ann? There’s zumba, tennis, yoga and many other things to busy yourself with @HP. Show respect to those who earned it and move on with life. Likely there is a plaque that will print exactly what you want- order it online and be done.
