Congratulations to Summit’s top two students who were named Valedictorian and Salutatorian for their class.
William McLane has the highest grade point average in the Class of 2023 and will serve his classmates as Valedictorian. In addition to his coursework, William competed in cross country, indoor track and spring track. He also earned recognition in science for his Caring for Watersheds project and is a National Merit Scholar Program finalist. A member of the National Honor Society, William will attend Georgetown University in the fall.
Summit lifer, Lavina Grzymajlo, is the Salutatorian. During her Upper School years, she played tennis and was also a runner in three seasons. She is a member of the Hope Squad, National Honor Society, Science Research Institute and Key Club and an accomplished artist with membership in the National Art Honor Society. Lavina was recently awarded a scholarship from the Flying Pig Marathon for her athletic accomplishments coupled with a commitment to community service. A recipient of the National Merit Scholarship, Lavina will attend Washington University in St. Louis and plans to study architecture.
Both students will give commencement speeches on Sunday, May 21.
“William and Lavina represent the best of The Summit,” says Upper School Director Kelly Cronin. “They are committed academically while demonstrating a dedication to being well-rounded leaders of character. We’re proud of these two students and know they will represent Summit with distinction during their college careers.”
