Perfect At Being At School

What have you done that Eric Johnson has never done? Probably missed a few days of school.

Johnson just graduated from high school in California. That's 13 years of school, including kindergarten. And in that whole time, he has never stayed home from school once!

"He not only has no days or period of absence, he has no tardies. He has truly perfect attendance. " said assistant Principal Ellie Valentine.

Yes, Eric has been sick sometimes, but, "I never really got so sick that I couldn't come to school, or if I did get that sick it would usually be over a Christmas vacation or over a weekend or something like that," said he.

Some of his friends think they know what he'll do next.

"Not miss a day in college."
