“We have kids going all over the east coast, to schools in Florida, some to Ohio State,” Smith said.

Smith said he has known these students for five years, having first met them at the district’s middle school when they were in the eighth grade.

“I was principal at the middle school and they came over with me,” he said.

Chesapeake does not have a valedictorian or salutatorian, but 16 students graduated summa cum laude, 11 magna cum laude and 10 cum laude.
