Class Valedictorian

Every year, the students and faculty vote to select an exceptional representative to serve as Class Valedictorian. He or she is considered to be the student who best represents the ideals of the class. The Valedictorian ultimately delivers a speech on graduation day, with at least a segment in French, that encapsulates the experiences, friendships and life cultivated at NJC. 
This year’s Valedictorian was Eric Godden ’19 who likened the NJC experience to ascending a mountain. At the summit on graduation day, he reflects “We can now see new peaks that we could never see before.” Scroll the video gallery to hear more valedictory addresses from other recent NJC graduates.
