Administrators at Pickerington's two high schools have named the top 10 students for their respective 2019 graduating classes.

Rather than identifying a valedictorian and salutatorian, the Pickerington Schools' tradition is to name the top 10 academic performing students -- the Decem Decori -- at each high school.

Both high schools will hold their commencement ceremonies May 25 at World Harvest Church, 4595 Gender Road, Columbus.

Pickerington High School North will hold its graduation at 1 p.m. and Pickerington High School Central's will take place at 4 p.m.
