The class valedictorian is the student with the highest GPA among their graduating class. The class salutatorian is the student with the second highest GPA of their graduating class. It’s important to honor them because they worked so hard during their years in high school. The tradition of selecting a valedictorian goes back to 1772 at The College of William & Mary. It began when Norborne Berkeley – formally known as Lord Botetourt – arrived from England to serve as Governor of Virginia. He fell in love with the colony and the college. To show his appreciation for the school and the student body, he put up a gold medal as the prize awarded to the student most skilled in Latin written composition and oratory.
