MPS celebrates 2018 valedictorians and salutatorians

MPS celebrates 2018 valedictorians and salutatoriansWearing caps and gowns in a rainbow of colors, top graduates from high schools across MPS were honored for their impressive academic accomplishments by the Milwaukee Board of School Directors at the Board's May meeting. Parents and family members were on hand to show their pride in their students. More than 75 students were honored, a number that reflects multiple valedictorians – as many as twelve – at some schools.

"Receiving the esteemed distinction as valedictorian or salutatorian is something that takes incredible persistence, and these students have truly earned this honor," said MPS Interim Superintendent Dr. Keith Posley. "We applaud our graduates as they head out to universities here in Milwaukee and all across the U.S. They are the future of this city and our country."

Valedictorians and salutatorians from the MPS Class of 2018 are heading to diverse destinations that include Alverno College, Grand Canyon University, Marquette University, Milwaukee Area Technical College, Northwestern University, Tennessee Tech, University of Iowa, University of Minnesota, University of Wisconsin–Madison, University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, Vanderbilt University, Xavier University and more.

Congratulations to all of our exceptional valedictorians and salutatorians!
