Newark High School Valedictorian’s Words Of Wisdom Will Raise Your Spirit

NEWARK, NJ — Malcolm X Shabazz High School’s 2017 valedictorian has some words of wisdom for the Newark community: “It’s impossible to be a resilient and compassionate person without knowing how to embrace humanity.” Those are the words of Kim Boerrigter, who recently graduated at the top of her class and will attend Harvard University on a full scholarship this September to get cracking on her dream of becoming a “scientist who is a woman of color.”
