Girl Is Only Member of Ottumwa School's Graduating Class
OTTUMWA, Iowa (AP) — Seventeen-year-old Rachel Cobler will be the only person in her graduating class at Ottumwa Christian School this year — and she's not even a senior.
The small private school had just six graduates last year. It wouldn't have had a graduating class at all in 2011, but Cobler, an 11th-grader, doubled up on her classes and got her diploma a year early.
Cobler, who runs track at nearby Ottumwa High, has a 3.7 GPA.
The Ottumwa Courier says that when asked if she'd be the class valedictorian, Cobler simply responded with a shrug.
Cobler's one-girl graduation ceremony will be held on May 21.
