Each year, Senior High School and Hempstead High School recognize the graduates who have achieved the highest academic rank in their class. The student with the highest rank is named the class valedictorian and the student with the second-highest rank is named the salutatorian.
For the Senior High School Class of 2013, the valedictorian is Madison Davis and the salutatorian is Ben Martin. This Sunday, Senior will graduate 371 students during its graduation ceremony at 1 p.m. at the Five Flags Center.
For the Hempstead High School Class of 2013, the valedictorian is Raymond Baranski and the salutatorian is Rebecca Weires. Hempstead will graduate 374 students this year at its graduation on Sunday at 6 p.m. at the Five Flags Center.
Valedictorians and salutatorians are determined based solely on a student’s grade-point-average as calculated by a weighted mathematical formula.
