Susanna Coyle

Emma Crumbock has earned the distinction of being Nazareth Academy High School Class of 2024 valedictorian.

Crumbock said, “It definitely feels surreal to have been named valedictorian. I think so many people in my class are extremely hardworking and dedicated to their schoolwork, so I really believed that it could have been a number of people. I really felt the love and support from all my classmates and teachers when it was announced. I know that I have worked hard to achieve this accomplishment, but I don’t think I could’ve done it without the amazing teachers at Nazareth. From freshman year to now, I have not had one teacher that wasn’t supportive,  understanding, dedicated and caring for each student.”
