Many people say that one is the loneliest number but I'm here to tell you why this statement couldn't be any more inaccurate,” Leach said.“The senior class of 2013 at DeKalb County High School has many individuals with many unique characteristics. However, we have something that I believe no other class is fortunate enough to have.
