Lindsey Frost graduated from San Marcos High School with the streak of having attended school for 2,353 days straight.
“In kindergarten I got the perfect attendance award first and I really liked the idea of it just because all you had to do was show up to get it,” Frost told WZZM. “Then [by 10 years old], I thought to myself it would be a neat story to tell my kids one day that I was able to do it every year throughout high school.”
Frost graduated with a 4.31 GPA and completed five college courses in the process.
“She is an impressive student and having her in class was really a joy,” said Tara Razi, Frost’s U.S. history teacher last year during virtual learning. “Throw in a pandemic on that, and online learning on that and Lindsey taking classes at the same time at the college.”
Frost said most people are shocked to learn she never missed a day of school.
“It is very rare,” said San Marcos High School Principal Adam Dawson. “What employer doesn’t want someone who is there every day?”
Rep. Scott Peters (D-CA) also congratulated Frost.
“I was pretty good at school, but I can’t imagine being there every day, that is pretty impressive,” Peters said.
