Supportive parents were the driving force behind the top of Andalusia High School’s Class of 2013.

Valedictorian Alex Evans graduated last night with a 4.0 GPA.

He has been a member of the National Honor Society, was a summa cum laude graduate, member of the tennis team, and won the Jerri Stroud Award.

In the fall, he plans to attend Auburn University and major in chemical engineering. He was awarded an Auburn University Alumni scholarship.

“My parents were my motivation for making good grades,” he said.

Salutatorian Candace Cravey agreed her parents were strong motivators for her as well.

Cravey said her overall GPA was a 99.98, and she was a member of the National Honor Society, won a community service award and was a summa cum laude graduate.

She plans to attend the University of Alabama in the fall, and major in pre-med. She was awarded a UA presidential scholarship and a Coca-Cola scholarship.

Evans is the son of Ron and Dana Collun and Cravey is the daughter of Sonny and Lisa Cravey.
