When best friends Kate Brundage and Tori DeJoy found out they were going to be Auburn High School’s 2017-18 valedictorian and salutatorian, they were thrilled.
“It is a huge honor, and it is awesome to be sharing it with my best friend,” Brundage said.
Brundage, valedictorian, and DeJoy, salutatorian, have been best friends since they were freshman.
“I was really proud of both of us,” DeJoy said. “It is definitely humbling.”
Outside of academics, both young women were on the Auburn High School Tennis team and hold part-time jobs. Each are planning to attend college after they graduate, but their schools of choice are yet to be determined.
