[slideshow_deploy id=’79922′]As senior Alexandra Corrow walked into the College and Career room for the valedictorians and salutatorian celebration she introduced herself as the girl who got one B.

Corrow was a straight A student and had her eyes set on valedictorian until she reached AP World History class her sophomore year.

“I tried to study but this was the only class I couldn’t get an A in. I am forever now scared from history,” Corrow said. “It was very important to me to keep a 4.0, but then I got a B. I wanted to be salutatorian so I tried to maintain A’s in all my other classes.”

One event Corrow is proud to remember is winning the Lockheed Martin’s Robotics competition.

“[My fondest memory is] winning the robot competition with my group because we built the car two days before the competition and we were not expecting to win,” Corrow said.

Math was also a place for Corrow to shine and grow. She graduated with six math credits finishing her senior year with AP Calculus BC.

“My favorite class is AP Calculus BC with Dr. Tachon because she is a fantastic teacher and I really enjoy math,” Corrow said.

Although Corrow is not one of the nine valedictorians, she has many academic accomplishments through her four years in high school. Corrow was a member of the Math Club for four years and an officer her senior year, Interact Club treasurer and Spanish Club treasurer her senior year. Also, Corrow ran cross country and played water polo her freshman year.

Corrow will attend the University of Central Florida to study mechanical or electrical engineer because of her passion for math and physics.
