Each year, the top two — or sometimes three or more — students in a high school’s graduating class are honored for their dedication to academic excellence and named the valedictorian and salutatorian.

Valedictorians are recognized for graduating with the highest grade point average in their class, and salutatorians are honored for having the second highest.

What follows is a complete list of the valedictorians and salutatorians from the Cobb School District’s 16 high schools and seven private schools in the county.

Valedictorian and salutatorian information from Marietta High School and Johnson Ferry Christian Academy was not available by press time.
