WHEREAS, members of the 127th General Assembly of the State of Delaware have recently learned from an article which appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer that out of fifty schools which the study included in the Delaware Valley area, Alexis I. duPont High School of Greenville, Delaware, ranked in the first ten; and

NOW, THEREFORE:

BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the 127th General Assembly of the State of Delaware, the Governor concurring therein, that congratulations are hereby extended to the Alexis I. duPont High School for having been selected as one of the top high schools in the Delaware Valley area out of a field of fifty schools included in the study.
