Tyler Consolidated Announces Valedictorian and Salutatorian

By Staff | May 23, 2018


Tyler Consolidated is proud to announce this year’s Valedictorian, Luke Daugherty and Salutatorian, Amanda Reynolds.

Daugherty, son of John and Lori Daugherty of Paden City, will be attending West Virginia University where he will be studying engineering. Daugherty doesn’t have a specific job in mind to strive for, but he chose to gravitate towards engineering because of his fondness for math and science.

During high school, Daugherty participated in soccer, basketball and baseball, as well as being a member of National Honor Society, Math Field Day and Science Quiz Bowl, as well as Technology Student Association.

Daugherty would like to thank the teachers and staff at Tyler Consolidated High School for helping him through his educational journey. He would also like to thank his parents and family for being supportive. He also thanked his coaches for encouraging him to do well in both sports and academics. “I greatly appreciate all the support I’ve received from family, friends, teachers, coaches, and Sistersville First United Methodist Church” stated Daugherty.

Daugherty is excited to attend WVU and move forward with his academic career although the reality is still sinking in. Daugherty stated, “I just took my last exam ever at Tyler Consolidated,” he said.


Amanda Reynolds is the daughter of Luke and Regina Reynolds of Sistersville. She will be attending Bethany College where she plans on studying Biochemistry. She explained that she would eventually like to become a pharmaceutical scientist after completing grad school.

During high school, Reynolds was involved in cross country, track, soccer, basketball, TSA, NHS, Prom Club, and she will even be playing basketball for Bethany College.

Reynolds would like to thank her family for supporting her throughout her academic endeavor. She stated she is thankful to have been able to attend Tyler Consolidated, but she is looking forward to the next step of her academic career.

We at the Tyler Star News would like to congratulate these students on their accomplishments and wish them the best of luck in the future.
