Locust Valley High School is proud to announce the Class of 2014 Valedictorian Joseph Palumbo and Salutatorian Anne Hollmuller.

Joe has earned a 107.56 GPA while taking the most rigorous course load offered at Locust Valley High School. He is an International Baccalaureate Diploma Candidate and has pursued the most difficult route toward the IB Diploma taking four Higher-Level courses and three Standard-Level courses. He combines hard work with raw brainpower and makes it appear as though his accomplishments were easy. Joe has always pursued the most rigorous courses offered, advancing in math during middle school and skipping a level of Italian due to his aptitude.
 
Joe is a member of the National Honor Society and Foreign Language Honor Society, and has earned High Honor Roll status every quarter since sixth grade. In addition to the IB Diploma, Joe will graduate in June with a Regents Diploma with Advanced Designation and Honors, the highest diploma awarded by New York State and will receive a New York State Mastery Diploma in Math and Science, as well as a Locust Valley Diploma with Distinction. Outside of the classroom, Joe is a valued member of the Science Olympiad Club, has performed with the Jesters and is a member of the choral program and the orchestra.

Salutatorian Anne Hollmuller is a candidate for the International Baccalaureate Diploma, and like Joe, decided to obtain this diploma the most demanding way possible by taking four Higher Level courses and two Standard Level courses. She takes the most difficult IB courses offered - IB Physics and IB Math, and has scored a 109 and 107 in these subjects. Anne earned a perfect 80 on her Critical Reading PSAT and scored almost a perfect score on the SAT. It is no surprise that she has been given awards in Social Studies and Chemistry for her Outstanding Achievement and in Orchestra for her Outstanding Effort. Anne is also a member of the award-winning school newspaper, The Spectrum.  She has served as Opinion Editor, Writer and Co-Editor in Chief.

Congratulations to Joe and Anne on this outstanding accomplishment!
