Valedictorian and Salutatorian
The Board of Directors of the Carol Morgan School is proud to introduce this year’s valedictorian, Alex Vars McQuilling Cabral '17. Alex is an exceptional student and amazing individual. He has completed eleven Advanced Placement courses at The Carol Morgan School and has served as the Student Council President. As an artist, he has been a stalwart member of the award-winning CMS choir, and in 2016 his original poem received highest honors from the Scholastic Art & Writing Association. As an athlete, he has led the CMS basketball and volleyball teams through some of our most successful seasons in years, and he was recently honored with the CMS Athlete of the Year award. As a scholar he has four times completed a CMS course with a perfect 100% average, and was also recently commended by the College Board’s National Merit program. This fall, he will be attending the very prestigious Harvard University. Alex has a tremendous work ethic, a fecund mind, an unerring moral compass, and intrepid leadership skills. When Alex is around, other people feel compelled to be their best selves.
