Daniel Cross is the son of Tracey Simmons and Gregory Cross and a senior at Fredonia High School. He has been awarded the principal's award every quarter of his high school career. In addition to taking advanced English all four years of school, Daniel has also taken six of the eight advanced placement courses Fredonia High School offers: statistics, physics, psychology, English literature and composition, U.S. history, and U.S. government. He loves science and math classes best because they tend to challenge him most. He is in the top 10 percent of his class and will graduate in June with an Advanced Regents Diploma with Honors.
