Valedictorian Adam Burger and salutatorian Jada Vail were among the honorees at the recent Orange-Ulster BOCES Outstanding Student Award Ceremony, held at Goshen High School’s Coliseum.
During Adam’s high school career, he was a member of the indoor/outdoor track and field , gymnastics and lacrosse teams. He is also a member of the school’s chapter of the National Honor Society.
This fall, Adam will attend the Rochester Institute of Technology and will major in chemical engineering.
During her high school career, Jada has served as FBLA president and was a member of the varsity indoor/outdoor track team, where she is the school’s record holder for the girl’s javelin throw. She is also a member of the school’s chapter of the National Honor Society.
Additionally, Jada is QuestBridge College Prep scholar and National College Match finalist.
This fall, Jada will attend Cornell University, with a double major in mathematics and physics.
The ceremony was rescheduled due to bad weather, and as a result Adam and Jada were unable to attend due to long standing AP exam commitments. Superintendent Brian Monahan and Principal Ken Hauck presented them with their awards on June 14.
“Your dedication and hard work have definitely set you on a path to success and you are positive role models for others to follow,” said Mr. Hauck.
