Class of 2014 Valedictorian Chosen

Plant Operator Program Student Hart Joron to Deliver Speech


Plant Operator Program student Hart Joron will join an elite club next week when he delivers the valedictory speech at the Selkirk College Graduation 2014 Ceremony on the Castlegar Campus.

The regional college has been graduating students for almost 50 years and each ceremony comes with a wise send-off from a fellow student. Joron will deliver the speech next Friday as the Class of 2014 valedictorian.

“It was kind of a shock actually, but it’s a huge honour,” says Joron. “I guess I’ve done something right while I was here.”

Class of 2014 valedictorian

Plant Operator Program student Hart Joron will represent the Selkirk College Class of 2014 next Friday.

The Plant Operator Program is based out of Nelson’s Silver King Campus. Program instructor Bruce McMaster nominated Joron because of the impressive qualities he saw in the straight-A student from the opening day of class.

“As a student Hart was supportive of his fellow students to an outstanding degree,” says McMaster. “He always took the time to listen quietly to others, share his acquired knowledge and generally contribute to everyone’s success. He’s a really smart, easy-going person with a big heart.”
