“I am so honored to carry this title, and I am very grateful for the recognition,” says Ms. DelCostello. “However, it is important to note that while I am very excited and proud to be valedictorian, it is only one small part of who I am. While it may be forgotten who the Class of 2024 Valedictorian was, my hope is that those who know me will remember me for my character. I am not perfect in any way, but I try to leave people feeling a little better than when I found them. A smile, enthusiastic attitude, or a kind word goes a long way and today’s society needs it more than ever. I aim to be a positive force in the world!”

Once you know you can do something, you don’t settle for less after that. As I set my goals for college, I want to thank the many staff that have helped me achieve my goals at JE!”
