On behalf of the Brant Christian staff it is my honour to announce that this year's valedictorian is Abigail Emsheimer. Abigail has spent most of her school years at Brant. Since junior high she has maintained top level grades in all subjects, participated in athletics, involved in several of our school plays, played in the band, sang in our choir and is lead pianist for our praise and worship team. This past year, Abigail was our student council president. And if you ask Abigail what is the most important thing to her, she would tell you that it is her faith in Jesus Christ. Abigail has been a fantastic leader in our school and she will be greatly missed next year.
If you think that Abigail's biography is impressive, we had eight other students who were also very talented. These students were blessed with artistic talent, athletic skills and their academics as a class is the highest I have seen at Brant Christian in my six years of being here. This class was a joy to teach and their willingness to take on leadership roles and work with our younger students made Brant Christian a stronger, safer school. We will miss all of these graduates. Each of their biography's will appear on our website in the days to come. We will also honour these students at our year-end closing to be held on June 26 with a formal grad gown and diploma ceremony.
