Jannatul Chowdhury will be the salutatorian while Nadia Almestica will be the valedictorian. Jannatul says she was surprised by the honor. “I didn’t expect it, she said. “I thought one of my friends would be picked.”

Nadia, who has the highest grade point average in the senior class, put the honor in perspective: “It’s really about balance. It’s not about hard work and fun. It’s about pacing yourself and doing both.”
