Valedictorian / Kappa Gamma Pi


The valedictorian is the student who has the honor and the responsibility of delivering a message to fellow graduates. While traditionally the valedictorian has been selected on the basis of academic excellence (a minimum of a 3.70 GPA is required) and instructional involvement, the role also calls for a graduate who has meaningful message that is well prepared for delivery.

Application Forms

Potential valedictorians must submit an application and three to six nominations. Applications, nominations and the draft of the address must be submitted via the following links. The due date is Monday, March 6, 2017 – No exceptions to this date.
