Halpert Named Valedictorian
Far Rockaway resident Rebecca Halpert will be graduating from the Lander College for Women as class valedictorian this month
A psychology major, Halpert maintained a grade point average of 3.96 out of a possible 4.0, and she has engaged in extracurricular activities connected with her major throughout her academic career. But despite her incredible drive to excel in school, Halpert is just like any other ordinary college student. She has a great appreciation for the arts. And she likes sports. Hiking is one of her favorite activities, and she really likes repelling down mountains, a very daring mountain-climbing technique.
As for her speech as class valedictorian, Halpert says that she is committed to properly representing her graduating peers.
