PHS Central recognizes its 'Top 10' seniors


Pickerington High School Central last week announced the 10 highest-performing students academically in its class of 2013.

Central's seniors are counting down the days until their last day of classes May 24, and graduation a few days later.

In the meantime, the school and Pickerington Local School District officials have recognized the "Decem Decori," or top 10 students in Central's graduating class.

Although the district does not publicize individual academic records, the Decem Decori designation is given to the 10 students at each high school who have the highest grade-point average.

Students honored with the Decem Decori designation are:

* Tynan Douglas, son of Maurice and Laura Douglas, who will attend the University of Chicago and study economics.

* David Drummond, son of Jeff and Sharon Drummond, who will attend Ohio State University and study finance.

* Julia Filby, daughter of Christopher and Catherine Filby, who will attend Ohio University and currently is undecided on her intended area of study.

* Emily James, daughter of Eric and Susan James, who will attend OSU and study biomedical engineering with a minor in creative writing.

* Joseph Kubicki, son of Daniel and Wai Chi Kubicki, who will attend Wake Forest University and study mathematical business.

* Park Lukich, son of Darin and Carol Lukich, who will attend OSU and study political science.

* Meghan Ritchey, daughter of Scott and Elizabeth Ritchey, who will attend OSU and study pharmaceutical science.

* Nick Stanley, son of Michael and Amy Stanley, who will attend the University of Michigan and study electrical engineering.

* Livia Stanley, daughter of Roy Stanley and Dina Toyzan, who will attend OSU and study computer science and engineering.

* Olivia Lynn Vandervoort, daughter of Craig and Amy Vandervoort, who will attend Miami University and study biology/pre-dental.

The Decem Decori will be among 367 Central students slated to participate in graduation ceremonies June 1 at World Harvest Church, 4595 Gender Road, Canal Winchester.

Central's graduation is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m.
