Piper Award for Outstanding Learning
Due by 9:30 am Friday, April 23, 2021
A valedictorian is a person who represents what is best about a graduating class. The honour goes to a person who:
has been involved in school and community leadership.
has a deep understanding of the high school journey and how that relates to the future.
is a person who can articulate a positive reflective message of the past.
has an insightful image for the future.
The Valedictorian needs to have four key qualities:
Demonstrated leadership in the school and community.
Outstanding commitment to Argyle - attendance, behaviour.
Academic success (minimum C+ GPA based on all courses).
Quality engagement in online learning during COVID.
The Valedictorian Committee looks forward to reading the applications. All applicants need to be prepared to present 2 minutes of their speech and a paper copy to the committee as part of the selection process. Due to a shortened timeline to organize a convocation this year and social distancing requirements, only single applications will be accepted. No pairs applications will be accepted. Valedictorian selection will be made by the Staff Grad Committee and members of the Grad Council. The announcement of a candidate will take place in the first week of May.
