The valedictorian and salutatorian have been announced for Dryden High School’s class of 2017.

 

Valedictorian Claire Conklin will be attending Ithaca College next year to major in Biochemistry with pre-med advising. While a student at Dryden, she participated in the Sustainability Club, in which she served as treasurer and president. Sustainability Club was responsible for establishing the series of trails that run through the forested areas on the school’s campus. Conklin said she will miss being part of the music program at Dryden as a saxophone player in the jazz band and saxophone choir. Her parents are Patricia and James Conklin.

 

“A word of advice to anyone still in high school: get involved in your school and your community,” Conklin said. “Life is kind of boring unless you care about stuff.”

 

 

 

The salutatorian for 2017 is Brandon Clark, who is graduating one year early and will be attending SUNY Geneseo for pre-med. During his time at Dryden, he was a part of Serteen, a service-based organization that provides community service, such as volunteering time at the Willowbrook Senior Living Community. Clark served as both vice president and president of Serteen over the course of his high school career. Due to graduating one year early, Clark says he will miss the Dryden High School community, including his friends and teachers. His parents are Dixie and Thomas Clark.

 

“Instead of focusing on what you want to do for a living, you should focus on living itself,” he said as advice to future high school students.
