Better than Valedictorian

Eric was nominated for valedictorian but wasn’t as disappointed that he didn’t win. He won the Aristeia Award which is Riverdale’s highest award ‘to students in their graduating year. That you have won the award, as the result of a balloting of your colleagues, indicates that your academic achievement and your contribution to the extra-curricular program of the school have earned well-deserved recognition’ – as written by the principal.

He gets a photo plaque and trophy. Great way to end high school.

We went to the professional photographer today for the photo. Her name is Donna Miller. She is an award winner and one of her claims to fame is that she photographed Joni Mitchell.
