An 18-year-old named Kymberly Wimberly graduated from McGehee Secondary School in Arkansas several weeks ago. Even though she had the highest G.P.A. in her graduating class, she wasn’t allowed to be the sole valedictorian — perhaps because she’s black. The school named a white student with a lower G.P.A. as co-valedictorian. Kymberly is now suing the school district.
This case is formally Wimberly v. McGehee School District et al. Plaintiff’s name is given as Kymberly L. Wimberly; I’m guessing her middle name isn’t “Limberly.” Do not confuse with Kimberly Wimberly or Kimberley Wimberley, or anyone you know named McGehee.
