Cur’Dericka Rice, a high school valedictorian from Richwood High School in Louisiana, has achieved remarkable success by being accepted into 13 colleges and receiving nearly $1 million in scholarships.

Graduating with a perfect 4.0 GPA and an impressive ACT score of 33, Rice’s academic excellence has garnered significant recognition.

Rice attributes her achievements to the unwavering support of her teachers and parents.

“Walking into college, goals that I have are just to keep my head on straight and continue to make the people around me proud. But, as far as academics, I’m just up for the challenge because I’m ready to be challenged, and do the best that I can,” Rice told KNOE.

This fall, Rice will be attending Louisiana Tech University with plans to major in chemical engineering. Her long-term goal is to mitigate the impacts of pollution, reflecting her commitment to making a positive difference in the world.

Rice encourages others to persevere in the pursuit of their goals, regardless of the challenges they might face.

“Even if you don’t think it’s possible, you should still strive to excel and go beyond whatever the goal may be, because you never know what you can do. If you doubt yourself and count yourself out, you won’t even be able to live up to that potential because you didn’t even try,” she advised.

As she prepares for her college journey, Rice is eager to tackle the challenges ahead and continue her path of academic and personal growth.
