From academic rivals to inseparable best friends: Union High School seniors delighted to be named Academic All-State together
Two seniors at Union High School started out as bitter rivals desperate to reach the top of their class and leave the other behind. Now they’re best friends who are more than happy to share the limelight.
There’s nothing surprising about Keegan Knouse and Anna Claire McMullen making the short list of top public school seniors in Oklahoma. The two were named National Merit finalists this year — a common denominator among Academic All-Staters.
But what may be surprising, at least to those who know them best, is the sheer joy they have for each other.
