Carey Honors Valedictorian and Salutatorian

H. Frank Carey High School is pleased to announce Clare Schwarzenberg as valedictorian and Robert Humrich as salutatorian for the Class of 2019.

Clare achieved a weighted grade point average of 101.75, which includes an incredibly rigorous course load of advanced and AP courses. Additionally, she is enrolled in the district’s highly selective Advanced Pre-Engineering Instrumentation and Automation Program. Academically, Clare’s program is among the most rigorous of her class and yet still remains an incredibly involved and modest member of the student body. A future engineer, she is a volunteer robotics coach for sixth- and seventh-graders at the local elementary school and helped coach the team to a second-place finish, last year. A testament to her leadership is her intellect and ability to motivate and inspire. She is the literary editor of the Poseidon, layout editor of the Carey Clipper and a valued member of the marching band. Recently, Clare was named a National Merit Commended Scholar, an honor that is bestowed on only 3 percent of students her age nationally. She has been inducted into the National Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta Math Honor Society, the Science Honor Society and Tri-M Music Honor Society. Clare is a remarkably mature, ambitious and committed young woman who consistently achieves the highest standards for success. She embodies the absolute best qualities of today’s youth and her potential is limitless.

Robert is a phenomenally impressive senior with an outstanding record of academic, personal and extracurricular achievement. With a cumulative weighted grade point average of 101.42, Robert has taken 12 Advanced Placement courses including six during his senior year. He was recently named a National Merit Commended Scholar and was inducted into the National Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta Math Honor Society, and the Science and World Language honor societies. His teachers have described him as a dream student and someone who can always be counted on to raise the level of class discussion. Outside of the classroom, he is a valued member of both the varsity football and track teams and most recently, he was named a football game captain because of his dedication, perseverance and leadership skills. An involved but humble member of his class, he can be found behind the scenes, helping in any way, whether hanging posters for Spirit Day or providing peer tutoring for younger students in the building. He is a leader, a role model and his tremendous character, has earned him the respect of his peers, the administration and the faculty. A stellar student and a remarkable person, Robert is destined to achieve amazing things.

Congratulations to Clare and Robert!
