Whitehouse senior graduates with perfect attendance

WHITEHOUSE, TX (KLTV) - For 12 years, a Whitehouse student managed to make it out of bed everyday and go to class.

Starting in kindergarten up until his senior year, Zachary Thompson never missed a day of school.

"I got to junior high and I was like 'well, it doesn't matter that much I guess.' At times I didn't want to go to school, but I'd already gone halfway and it's kinda like an achievement to go all the way without missing any school," explains Thompson.

Zachary says the hardest days to make it to school were the ones following baseball games. This is the second year in a row a Whitehouse student has graduated with perfect attendance.
