2012 Senior Jenny Biermen is the valedictorian; she has gone to Cedar Key School since 6th grade. In her years at CKS she has taken all the required classes to graduate as well as marine science, teacher’s aid and the work program - and while doing all this managed an almost a perfect GPA.
Biermen is currently a full-time duel enrollment student attending college at Santa Fe. She is taking courses such as college algebra, art and college success. Biermen has taken ten college classes so far in hopes of reaching a career in the music industry, working at a record company and maybe a radio station. She is currently in the work program working part time at a lawyer’s office in Gainesville.
For words of inspiration, Biermen wanted to let students know, “You deserve it if you work for it; don’t let anyone tell you what you do or don’t deserve. You can earn whatever you want to earn as long as you try hard. Anyone can achieve what I’ve worked for- you just have to set your mind to it.”
