Dripping Springs High School has named its top graduating seniors for the class of 2020. Johnny Dollard was named valedictorian, and Jason Oliphant is the school's salutatorian.

"We are so proud of these amazing seniors and the work and time they have put into their studies at DSHS,” Principal Angela Gamez said in a press release by Dripping Springs ISD.

Gamez also announced the entirety of the top 10-ranked students in the class, including Ashley Rummel, Riley Wheaton, Cailey England, Rachel Stanley, Rebecca Depinto, Alexander Yount, Brooke Rummel and Cameron Duran.

“This group has not only excelled in the classroom, but they are well-rounded students who have been successful in many extracurricular activities as well," Gamez said. "I have no doubt that we will be seeing great things from each of them and deeply appreciate the way these students have represented Dripping Springs High School and our community in such a positive way.”

The announcement follows Superintendent Todd Washburn's decision not to include numerical grades from the current semester in Dripping Springs ISD students' grade-point averages, meaning class rankings for graduating seniors were determined by GPA configured as of the end of 2019.
