In the 5/25 edition of the Herald, a layout error caused a photo to cover up text in a story regarding the Convocation at Cranston East. The error caused the text regarding valedictorian, Madeline Baxter, to be excluded from the story. We offer sincere apologies to Madeline and give congratulations on her amazing achievement. Please find the omitted text, as well as a photo from the ceremony below.
This student is truly one of the Renaissance, as an accomplished artist, musician, athlete and leader. To demonstrate their wide variety of interests and involvements, this student is currently enrolled in AP Calculus, AP Art and Honors orchestra. Among their other courses, it is a rarity to see a student achieve at such a high caliber in such a variety of areas," Assistant Principal for Academic Affairs Kaitlin Hitchings said.
This student has truly distinguished themselves as an invaluable member of the East community. The Valedictorian serves as Captain of the Cross Country and track teams, and an intern in The Women in Technology Engineering Program, a member of student leadership, National Honor society and an officer in the National Art Honor Society.
“This year's Valedictorian has earned an incredibly impressive 5.153 GPA, the highest GPA recorded in Cranston East History," said Hitchings.
Barbieri presented an engraved pen set and the Valedictorian Medal for the highest ranked senior to Madeline Baxter who will be attending Columbia University.
When Madeline's name was called out the room erupted into applause and cheers, and the students and people on the stage all gave her a standing ovation.–
