Does this mean we’ve had 264 valedictorians?

Graduation? It’s real. To prove it, Columbia College has just announced the valedictorian and salutatorian of the class of 2018, and congratulations are in order for Sam Goldberg and Hannah Bender, respectively! Goldberg, a sustainable development major, said that the honor is “really unexpected and humbling,” while Bender, a biology major, likewise said she feels “incredibly humbled and honored.” The two will speak at Columbia College’s Class Day on May 15, a day before University commencement.
