Valedictorian thrived in TC's small-town community

Triton Central High School’s valedictorian waited until two days before his graduation speech was due to start writing it.

“Even though I say in the speech not to procrastinate, I procrastinated a lot on it,” Jared Brown said. “It was due, like May 10 I think, and I did it like May 8 or 9. So a lot of it wasn’t exactly planned from the start. I just kind of started writing, and whatever I felt like saying, I said it.”
