It’s not easy to be the Valedictorian of any class. It takes hard work, dedication, and time – the kind of time that not every student is willing to give. Bridgeway’s class of 2015 valedictorian did not falter in any of these categories. It is with great honor that I get to introduce this year’s valedictorian, Meghan Kimball! 

Meghan Kimball hails from the beautiful state of Nevada and started her Bridgeway career in the 10th grade. She decided to enroll in Bridgeway because she desired the challenge and flexibility that Bridgeway offered.  Incredibly, she is the youngest student to ever participate in our Dual Enrollment program, having started taking college classes at age 15. (Interested? Find out more about Dual Enrollment courses for your student.)

Meghan attributes much of her success to her parents. She recalls a love of learning that her parents instilled in her at a young age, something that continues to grow with passing each year.  For Meghan, her parent’s support and her desire to succeed enabled her stay focused and do so well in all of her classes.

When asked what advice she would give to current Bridgeway Students Meghan’s advice is to “work hard and do your best in everything that you do, it’s going to be hard at times—but it’s worth it!”

Looking to the future Meghan sees herself studying Computer Science and Business. She is unsure where she want’s to attend college but is looking into schools in the Chicago area or on the East Coast. She hopes that no matter where she attends she can continue her love of learning and succeed despite the obstacles she may face.
