Flores, Valdez top of APHS Class of 2016
By Richard Gonzales
Out of the 108 members of the Class of 2016, two stand out just a step ahead of the rest. The valedictorian, Sergio Flores Jr. and the salutatorian, Claudia Valdez. Valdez has lived in Aransas Pass all her life. She will be leaving to attend Texas A&M University-College Station to major in Chemical Engineering. She will still be anchored to home with a sister Isabella, in fifth grade at Charlie Marshall and a brother attending Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. She is the daughter of Patrick and Misty Valdez of Aransas Pass.
