The Class Act Files: Student Has Perfect Attendance...For 13 Years

Say hello to Shawn Li. He is a high school senior that attends Phoenix's Barry Goldwater High School. Since he began kindergarten, this young man has never missed a day of school.

That's right. He has not missed a single day of school in the last 13 years.

Shawn is so concerned about getting to school on time, that he sets three alarm clocks each night. When asked if were going to participate in that once-in-a-lifetime rite of passage known as "senior skip day," Shawn said, "Forget about it."

Barring some unforeseen disaster, Shawn will be one of the top ten students in his graduating class, having taken the academically rigorous college preparatory curriculum.

He has only 78 more school days to go.
