Charles Mason (became a judge) holds the highest graduating grade point average in the history of West Point. Second highest is Robert E. Lee. Third highest is Douglas MacArthur. Top students have always interested me and I like to see how their lives turned out. The guy who graduated valedictorian in my high school class became a college professor. He played sports and was an all-around nice friendly guy. I'm still in touch with him. --I graduated 3 Navy schools -- 9th in a class of 72 and 55th in a class of 318. I don't remember the third school listing class standings. --In high school I was in a half day of school and half day work program. I was the first person to make a perfect score from any boss in 7 years. --Anyone graduated salutatorian or valedictorian in high school? What do you do today?
