Josh Oreman â09 gave the Commencement speech as valedictorian at the Commencement ceremony on June 5. Oreman was announced as valedictorian at the Cum Laude assembly on May 18.
The faculty was given a list of students with the top ranked grade point averages. From that group, the faculty elected Oreman valedictorian.
“Josh Oreman has distinguished himself in so many ways that he was very easily selected,” Head of School Jeanne Huybrechts said.
Oreman was informed he would be valedictorian several weeks before the assembly, but was unable to attend the Cum Laude assembly due to a National Physics Olympiad training camp in Maryland. He will represent the United States at the International Physics Olympiad.
In addition to competing in the Olympiad, Oreman also does Mock Trial, Moot Court at Duke University and is a member of the Science Bowl and robotics teams.
“Josh has been so highly recognized. Heâs very good with words so heâll present a good speech,” Huybrechts said.
