You can see the Granger pride beaming off of Chloe Beall when she accepted the valedictorian honor at the April Board of Education meeting. She was dressed in Granger blue and insists that, “It’s something that is hard to get rid of. I’ve grown up in LaGrange my whole life, so I will always have that Granger pride.”

She said her parents have always instilled a hard work ethic, and it encouraged her to put her schoolwork first.

“I always worked really hard for my grades and being named valedictorian just happened,” Beall said. “I was so excited to be named, and it came as a shock. It has shown that my hard work has paid off.”

Beall started at Hillcrest Elementary before attending Westide Magnet School and Gardner Newman Middle School. She is the daughter of Alex Beall and Dr. Hanna Beall, who is a TCSS administrator.

“They have always supported me in everything I wanted to do,” Beall said. “Whether it was dance, volleyball, or swim; they have always been there for me. I always appreciated their support in both my academics and anything extra I wanted to do.”

As a four-year varsity volleyball player, a member of the service club and a member of the Blue Crew for LHS, Beall said she will be attending college at the University of Georgia and majoring in pre-med. She wishes to help children as she plans to be in the field of pediatrics after college.   

“We are all about Granger Pride at LaGrange, and I absolutely love the pride we show,” Beall said. “There are so many memories that I have created during my time there with all of my friends, all of my teachers, and I hope they last a lifetime.”
