It is my pleasure to announce that two most deserving young women from the Goldie Margolin School for Girls have been selected as Valedictorian and Salutatorian of this year's graduating class. Following in the school's tradition, the honors are given to the two students from either of our two high schools with the highest cumulative grade point average. This year those distinctions go to Raquel Kampf, who was named Valedictorian, and Eliana Graber, who was named Salutatorian. Both Raquel and Eliana will spend next year studying in Israel at Sha'alvim for Women, after which Raquel will go on to Stern College for Women and Eliana will attend Barnard College.
Also receiving special recognition at graduation will be Andrew Tavin, who will be presented with his National Merit Scholarship Award. Andrew, who will be attending NYU as a Presidential Honors Scholar, is one of only 8200 students - out of 1.5 million entrants from across the country - to win the prestigious National Merit award.
Congratulations to them all!
