Earlier this week Morgan Gamble was been named the Class of 2023’s Valedictorian.
“It’s really exciting, when we were going through the nomination process I was really confident that anyone they picked would be amazing. But I’m very honored and thankful that it’s me and I’m excited to represent the Class of 2023 at graduation.”
Morgan is the ASB President, Vice President of the National Honor Society, and Captian of the Varsity Golf Team and she is a part of so much more. She qualified as an AP Scholar with Honors and was named a National Merit Scholar Commended Student. During her time at Carondelet Morgan has been awarded English, Computer Science, and Science Department, the Heart, Faith, and Courage Award Scholarship, the Presidential Scholarship, and the High Point University Book Award.
“Carondelet has given me a lot of opportunities to try new things and put myself out there, to take a few risks in what I decide to devote my time to. I’ve always felt if I felt called to do something or I wanted to do something, there was a place on campus to do it.”
Morgan will read her Valedictory Speech at Graduation on Saturday, May 20.
“I am not entirely sure what college I will be attending in the fall. I am planning on majoring either in Finance, Economics, or Applied Mathematics. In my next chapter, I will bring confidence into every conversation and room that I enter. Instead of only asking for a place at the table, I will use my voice for causes I believe in.”
The top ten students in the class were selected to participate in the valedictorian selection process. These candidates possess an exemplary record of conduct, leadership, and service that reflects their support of the Carondelet Mission Statement and the Mission of the Sisters of Saint Joseph.
As part of the application process, candidates submit a résumé, respond to short answer prompts, and compose a draft of a valedictory address reflecting the value of receiving a Catholic education at Carondelet.
After reviewing the applications, a faculty committee narrowed the pool to five finalists who delivered their valedictory addresses. All of the candidates should be proud of their achievements at Carondelet. They are young women of Heart, Faith, Courage, and Excellence who have made lasting contributions to our community.
