I had no doubts when I nominated you for this honor that you would be one of the chosen, because of your exemplary talent, unflagging commitment to academic excellence and your high set of personal standards. Being selected is an achievement in itself, but it is only one rung on the ladder you are climbing toward a highly successful and fulfilling life. There are even larger victories looming for you in the not-too-distant future. Thank you for serving as an example to students everywhere that, “If you can dream it, you can do it!” Thanks also for representing North Adams High School in the highest possible manner.
