The afternoon of 3 June, Principal Goldenberg announced that Robin Nyamekye was selected by MGCI seniors to be the valedictorian of the class of 2013. Robin has been involved in Student Council as Garneau’s Social Justice Representative for the past year, working to foster a welcoming environment in the school through the organization of such events as Pink Day. Robin commented that she’s “extremely excited, and ready to represent the class of 2013 and share all of our experiences.” She hopes that graduates will find her speech reflective of their years at Garneau.
Seniors interested in the valedictorian position had to attain endorsement from ten fellow students and two teachers to become candidates. Each candidate then made a speech to the outgoing class on Thursday 30 May after school, and the grade twelves made the final decision by ballot.
