Meixner comes in first: Pepin High School senior named valedictorian


PEPIN -- It's been a close race. But after four years of hard work, Pepin High School student Kayla Meixner has come out on top. The senior will walk across the stage during commencement Friday evening as valedictorian.

"(School) is very, very important to me. It's my No. 1 priority," Meixner said. "I really care about being well-educated. It really helps you in different aspects of life. Not just school."
