First female valedictorian leads Marist graduates, completers for 2021
Ana Katrina Asuncion, the first female valedictorian of Marist School Marikina, leads this year’s roster of Grade 6 and 12 graduates, as well as Kinder and Grade 10 completers, in the various year-end celebrations held last week.
Together with Arden Anagap as the batch salutatorian, Asuncion led 219 Grade 12 students graduated from high school and were officially inducted as alumni last June 24.
“As we leave this institution, let us continue living out the value of being of service to others by extending our hands to the needy, giving without expecting to receive, and working for the greater good,” Asuncion said.
Also on June 24, Arnold Bautista and Koji Martin Yamane, respectively gold and silver medalists, officially moved up to senior high school. There are a total 199 Grade 10 completers this year.
Meanwhile, 186 Grade 6 students graduated from grade school last June 23, with Jean Clarence Santos as their valedictorian and Jomari Go as the salutatorian.
Finally, Dan Zayne Alexis Domingo led the 17 completers of Kinder students in their ceremony last June 23. For the first time, there were two silver medalists, namely Etienne Balingit and Gavin Carandang.
Other Kinder medalists include first honorable mention Dylan Vincent Santos, second honorable mention Euclid John Tilitile, and third honorable mention and bronze medalist Daniel Joseph Veridiano.
All graduation and completion ceremonies were held via Zoom, with the attendance of parents, faculty, and administrators. A Baccalaureate Mass for all graduates and completers, including the Afternoon Shift students, was also held last June 21.
