Today was a proud day for 35 graduating seniors and their families as the Boston Public Schools and the city of Boston celebrated our class of 2015 valedictorians at a luncheon held at the Boston Harbor Hotel. Students were honored by Mayor Martin Walsh, Boston School Committee Chair Michael O’Neill, and School Superintendent John McDonough, and received backpacks and $100 gift certificates from the event’s main sponsor, Reebok. Emcee Meghan Irons, a Boston Globe reporter, a Dorchester native, and proud alumna of Burke High School and Emerson College, introduced each valedictorian.
