    Valedictorian, Class of 2014The University of the Arts Philadelphia
    Each year The University of the Arts faculty nominate a student to deliver the Valedictory Address at Commencement. Candidates are invited to submit a draft of a speech and asked to talk about their experiences at the University and to offer words of encouragement to their peers. As the president mentioned, "This year's Valedictory Speaker was chosen not only for the quality of his words but also for the many experiences he has had here at the University." http://vimeo.com/album/2875662/video/95760979
