Student Finds Out At Work That She's Class Valedictorian

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Lots of senior year traditions like prom and graduation have fallen by the wayside. But the principal of a Michigan high school didn't want to forgo all of them. She surprised senior Kaitlyn Watson at the drive-through where Kaitlyn works to deliver a message through the window.

(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)

MICHELLE FLOERING: You are GTA's 2020 class valedictorian.

KAITLYN WATSON: I am?

FLOERING: You are, you are.

WATSON: Oh, my gosh. Thank you so much.

MARTIN: She said she would've hugged her if she could. But instead, she bought a milkshake. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
