St. Joseph High School Announces 2019 Valedictorian and Salutatorian

TRUMBULL—St. Joseph High School, southern Connecticut’s premier college preparatory school, is proud to announce that Anna Argulian and Christopher Rossetti are this year’s Valedictorian and Salutatorian respectively.

Anna Argulian has attained the highest academic record among her class and will deliver the Valedictorian’s Farewell Address at the close of Commencement on Saturday, June 1. Anna came to St. Joseph High School from Flood Middle School in Stratford, Conn. She is President of the Women’s Studies Club, Historian for the National Honor Society, and a member of the Math, English, and Spanish Honor Societies. In addition, she is an editor for the school’s literary journal, Amaranth, and in 2018, was chosen as a Connecticut Governor’s Scholar. Outside of school, Anna participates in taekwondo, chess, and photography. In the fall, Anna will attend the University of Chicago and plans to major in Neuroscience.

“We are very proud,” remarked Dr. William Fitzgerald, head of school. Anna has chosen the University of Chicago (over Dartmouth), and as a Boston College alum, I’m hoping Chris will choose BC over a number of worthy alternatives. Wherever they go, they will be missed at St Joes. There are not two finer individuals to lead us into this season of reflection on the accomplishments of the great Class of 2019.”

Christopher Rossetti, Salutatorian, has earned the second highest academic average in his class and came to St. Joes from Seymour Middle School. He is a member of the National Honor Society as well as the Math, English and Spanish Honor Societies. James is also an editor for the Amaranth, plays on St. Joe’s Volleyball Team, is the leader of the Frisbee Club and a member of the Jeopardy Club. Christopher has been accepted into multiple colleges and has yet to finalize his commitment. He is considering a major in either Math or Science.

“We are thrilled for Anna and Chris,” said Dr. James Keane, principal, “not simply because of their academic achievements, but because in terms of character, leadership, involvement, and integrity they represent the best of the very best of St Joseph High School. We could not be more pleased or proud.”
