See Principal Tell Student She's Valedictorian in Drive-Thru

Watch a Principal Tell a Student Working a Drive-Thru She's the Class Valedictorian

For Michelle Floering, the secondary principal at Grand Traverse Academy in Traverse City, MI, milestones are still worth celebrating despite the fact that schools are closed and everyone is practicing social distancing. In a heartwarming video making its rounds on social media, Michelle visited 18-year-old Kaitlyn Watson at her job working a Culver's drive-thru to share some big news: Kaitlyn is officially the class valedictorian.

Proud of the teen's hard work, Michelle wanted to tell Kaitlyn of her achievement in-person, even if it had to be from six feet away. "Hi Kaitlyn. So, I got you on camera because I want to announce something to you today," Michelle says in the video. "You are GTA's 2020 class valedictorian!"

Clearly shocked to see a school administrator in the drive-thru and to get this exciting news while at work, Kaitlyn replied, "I am? Oh my gosh! Thank you so much." Although Michelle was super excited for Kaitlyn, she knew better than to embrace the teen. "You're welcome," she said. "And I know we have to stay six feet away so I can't give you a hug, but congratulations. Well deserved!"

Big congrats to Kaitlyn!
