Hailing from around the world, McGill’s valedictorians are a diverse, multitalented group. When they came to the University, they brought with them their unique backgrounds, passions, and ambitions. While they all praise the education they received at McGill, one thing is certain, the University has benefitted just as much for having them as valuable, contributing members of our community.
These outstanding students have earned the respect of the peers who they represent through their strong academic performance, leadership and commitment to making the University – and the world – a better place.
For the Spring 2021 Convocation, the Reporter continued its tradition of interviewing the newest group of McGill valedictorians.
McGill Education's inaugural co-valedictorians were interviewed by The McGill Reporter. You can read their interviews here:
- Maitena Gulli (BEd, Kindergarten and Elementary Education specializing in the Program immersion française) “Take advantage of all the resources at your feet. Enjoy your time here, do not be afraid to try new things because this is the time to test the waters!”
- Andrew Laplante (BEd, in the Secondary Program, science & technology) “Failure is normal and is part of the process. What determines your success is how you bounce back.”
