Senior Perspectives: Valedictorians
June 3, 2016
For four years of their life, East Seniors, Madlyn Kates (left) and Angela Sun (right) have consistently devoted hours upon hours to their school work with one objective: maintaining their status of “Class Valedictorian.” At least that’s why most assume the two worked so hard. But Kates and Sun actually have internal motivation, which drives them along, and want more than simply to achieve an “A” grade; they want a complete and total learning experience. Watch as the two reflect upon their four years at East, through a comprehensive discussion in which they explain their climb to “Valedictorian status,” their biggest struggle, and why being Valedictorian isn’t everything.
