CBHS graduates first 'solo' African-American valedictorian

A graduating senior made history at Christian Brothers High School.

Dwight Moore, Jr. is the school's first solo black valedictorian. In two other cases, an African-American shared the distinction of valedictorian with another student.

Dwight was accepted to Harvard and MIT, along with other highly prestigious schools. He ultimately chose to attend Stanford in the fall, where he'll major in Computer Science and Economics.

Dwight was a beloved part of the Good Morning Memphis team, where he was a 'Junior Journalist."

Congratulations Dwight!
