There are two students in this graduating class that have excelled both in their studies and in their personal growth during their time with us at Ross College Online. Their instructors found it to be impossible to make a choice between the two, so for this graduating class we will honor both as co-valedictorians!

Ross College Online Valedictorian Alexandra RempelSince graduating high school in 2012, Alexandra wanted to go back to school to eventually enter the medical field.

Alexandra went on to earn exemplary grades throughout her program eventually earning her a 3.97 GPA.

Alexandra is originally from the Macomb area, but now lives in Alberta, Canada, where her husband currently works. They are the proud parents to their daughter, Aurora, and their Chihuahua, Rocco. She is a state-wide competitive singer, and a certified SCUBA diver. Her favorite book is currently, Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson.
