'I had to do what had to be done'

COVID-19 has caused many of us to lose track of certain priorities, but this fact does not apply to Cuero High School valedictorian, Reed Lemke. “I know it was hard–late nights, studying, etc.– but I had to do what had to be done,” Lemke said.

As the school year comes to an end, Lemke is excited to close this chapter of his life, so he can start a new one at Texas A&M University this fall. While there, Lemke plans on majoring in statistics. “I'm hoping to attend and get my masters within four years and I’m just excited to be a part of the big Aggie community,” Lemke added.

Lemke’s main focus within his degree after college is still up in the air, but he plans on using his first two years of college to figure out which direction he would like to go into.

In regards to his education at Cuero High School, Lemke said that his family was his biggest motivator in striving for the number one spot. “Growing up, my parents and grandparents were always pushing and encouraging me to be the best I could possibly be,” he continued, “and I’d like to think that mindset really stuck with me growing up and throughout high school.”
