Hinsdale Central High School will no longer have valedictorians beginning with the graduating class of 2012.

The school's principal announced Hinsdale Central will recognize the top 2 percent of graduating classes as a way to honor more students.

That translates to honoring about 13 or 14 students in a class of nearly 700.

Hinsdale students who need their class ranking for scholarship or college applications will still be able to get their ranking.
