Grant Chernau is the salutatorian of Pope High School in Marietta. He has a GPA of 4.708 and plans to attend the University of Georgia in the fall. Grant has many interests but has not yet decided on a major.
“Although he, like all of the 2020 class, missed out on so many celebrations, Grant has remained focused and positive,” according to his mother, Lauren. He was to receive his diploma during a drive-through ceremony at Pope May 28. The school has not yet announced how graduation will be handled, but plans are to be revealed by June 1.
“Grant has been asked by the administration to write a speech, so we are hopeful that there will be a ceremony of some type,” said Lauren.
