They will also be the last valedictorian and salutatorian at Monett High School. The 2013-14 class will only recognize the top 10 percent. Steward said the switch will enable students to take courses to help their field of study in college, rather than choosing advanced placement classes for class rank.

A list of class positions will still be kept for college placement purposes, but not announced to the public.

Other members of the Top 10 Percent of the Class of 2013 follow, in alphabetical order:

* Tyler Matthew Bass, son of Darren and Kari Bass;

* Anna Josephine Cloud, daughter of Jim and Kelley Cloud;

* Josh Edgar, son of Melissa Edgar;

* Aaron Michael Hall, son of Keith and Sandy Hall;

* Charles Reece Johnson, son of Todd and Kathy Johnson;

* Josee Kathleen Krueger, daughter of Kirby and Christy Krueger;

* Caroline Beth McKinney, daughter of Steve and Leanne McKinney;

* Luis Enrique Medrano, son of Heriberto and Maria Medrano;

* Emily Christine Pitts, daughter of Jeremy and Teresa Pitts;

* Austin Thomas Ross, son of Chuck and Jeannie Ross;

* Johnathon William Schliem, son of Troy Schliem and Kathy Schliem;

* Zachary Chance Swearingen, son of Dan and Renee Swearingen;

* Monica Villa, daughter of Honorio and Cecilia Villa.

The Top 10 Percent will be recognized during commencement exercises, which will be held at 8 p.m. on Friday, May 17 in the school gymnasium. There will be 157 in the graduating class.

Honors for the graduating seniors will be presented in the annual Senior Honors Assembly at 7 p.m. on Monday, May 13 in the high school commons. Scholarships from local organizations as well as colleges and universities will be announced at that time. The program is expected to take approximately 90 minutes.
