La Salle announced today that Brigid Hanley '19 has been named the valedictorian of the Class of 2019.

Every spring, the administrative team consults with the Academic Council to decide who has earned the school's highest academic honors.
The primary consideration is given to cumulative weighted GPA after seven semesters. Other considerations include courseload, grades, and the level of rigor in a student's studies.
Valedictorians typically speak at Commencement and salutatorians typically speak at Baccalaureate.
