Siblings graduate as back-to-back valedictorians

Two siblings from New Smyrna Beach are back-to-back valedictorians at their high school.

Scott Mosher found out last week that he was at the top of New Smyrna Beach High's class of 2014l. His sister Kara was valedictorian of the class of 2013.

Scott graduated Sunday night and plans to study computer science at the University of Central Florida.

Making the honor even more special is the fact that Scott was diagnosed with autism and a very low IQ when he was 2.

Their mother, Mary Francis Mosher, told The Daytona Beach News-Journal that a thirst for knowledge runs in the family. She is a math teacher at the high school and their father, Rick, retired from a teaching position at Indian River Elementary School.
