Reed High School co-valedictorian Christopher Salls won’t be dealing with the homesickness factor this fall when he stays in Sparks to attend the University of Nevada, Reno.

Salls recently signed to attend UNR in the fall as a National Merit Scholarship finalist, one of 16,000 students nationally with the highest Scholastic Aptitude Test scores.

Reed principal Mary Vesco spoke highly of Salls, who graduates with a 5.1 grade point average and was involved with the jazz band and this semester attended the national finals of the We the People constitution competition in Washington, D.C.

“You could not ask for a nicer younger man and nicer parents,” Vesco said. “So I’m so proud of him and so glad the university made a big signing like this, like the athletes get the recognition for their signings.”

After he graduates college, Salls hopes research math or physics at the university level.

“I’ve always loved math and I turned out to be really good at physics when I started the class last year,” he said. “It’s fun.”
