Top Of His Class

A Montana high school student has managed to graduate at the top of his class. Simultaneously, he also managed to graduate at the bottom of his class. This is no real feat, however, since he IS his graduating class.

GREAT FALLS, Mont. – Jeff Greenwood is in a class by himself.
 
He was the only student to graduate from Opheim High School this year, but the small event Friday drew a big name. Gov. Brian Schweitzer gave the commencement address.

Greenwood, who plans to attend Dickinson State University in North Dakota, said the high school is the "hub of activity" for rural Opheim, a town about 10 miles south of the Canadian border.

"The student-to-teacher ratio is pretty good," said Greenwood, who is the student body president and, of course, the senior class president.

The good news: arranging class reunions will be a snap. Personally, my graduating class was ten times the size of Greenwood's. Literally. And here I thought I graduated from a small school.

    There were 10 in my dad’s graduating class. 741 in my graduating class. At graduation, the kids that sat on either side of me were complete strangers.

    There were almost 1000 in my graduating class. At the 10 year reunion I ran into a guy I’d been working with for over a year and neither one of us knew we had gone to high school together and graduated together.
