Extraordinary students

The Floyd Dryden Middle School honor roll for the third quarter appeared in Neighbors last week.

However, because of the Neighbors page editor's error, the 8th grade, All A's part of the list was not highlighted and was buried under another category. The following are the All A honor roll students:

Christianne Carrillo, Carly Garrison, Jordan Johnston, Matthew Kern, Kendra Northam, Elmelo Punongbayan, Stephanie Smathers, Elizabeth Stickel, Kacie Timothy, Maria Tribelhorn, Levi Wanstall.

(It goes almost without saying that the editor in question was NOT an All A student.
