Maggie Hudson was named Valedictorian for the Class of 2014. In her valedictory oration, she reminded her classmates of the familiar words of Ecclesiastes 3 (“For everything there is a season”), and suggested that this is not a time to stop learning, but a time to put aside their books and to use the knowledge they have gained over the last four years.
