Class of 2013: Kim accomplishes big goal at East Ridge


Early on in his high school career, East Ridge High School senior Kyutae "Alex" Kim set a goal for himself of beating his older brother's class ranking.

Well, Kim has done more than that by earning the rank of No. 2 in his graduating class.

"I wanted to rank higher than my brother," he said. "I don't even remember where he ranked, but it wasn't two."
