She scored in the top three percent of more than 160,000 African Americans.

In the event of rain, ceremony will be delayed and in the event of extreme inclement weather, the ceremony will be held indoors in the PRHS Auditorium. Graduates will be notified by rapid call if that is the case. If held indoors, each graduation participant will be allowed two guests, who must present tickets. Each graduation participant was given two guest tickets.

If a student has additional guests, they will be able to watch the ceremony via live television from multiple locations in the high school or through their cable provider in the comfort of their home in the Pine-Richland School District.
