In­spi­ra­tion and words of wisdom from lo­cal school vale­dic­to­ri­ans

“Be­ing in a grade where every­one knows each other is a feel­ing I will miss.”

How does it feel to be awarded vale­dic­to­rian? Be­ing se­lected as vale­dic­to­rian by my peers is an amaz­ing hon­our. I'm thank­ful for all of the gen­uine sup­port and kind­ness I've re­ceived from them. What as­pects of school life/extracurriculars were

you in­volved in? At CDS, I have been most heav­ily in­volved in sports and mu­sic - hav­ing played on a sports team for ev­ery term and been a part of the se­nior con­cert and jazz bands. In my last two years, I vol­un­teered as a school am­bas­sador and have also taken on in­for­mal lead­er­ship roles. Did you have a teacher who in­spired you? All of the teach­ers I had the priv­i­lege to learn from in­spired me in var­i­ous ways. They are all very pas­sion­ate about the sub­jects they teach, di­verse in their tal­ents and char­ac­ter and are truly in­vested in the suc­cess of their stu­dents. How do you think The Coun­try Day School (CDS) has pre­pared you for life af­ter grad­u­a­tion? It has helped me de­velop not only as a stu­dent but as a per­son. The Coun­try Day School has in­stilled within me val­ues of in­tegrity, com­mu­nity in­volve­ment and di­ver­sity.
