Ninilchik School, Class of 2018
Olivia Delgado graduated this year as the Valedictorian with a cumulative GPA of 4.0. She studied at Ninilchik School for 12 years and from sixth grade on always earned A grades. During her valedictorian speech, she talked about how it is important to move forward and learn from our mistakes, and that people tend to learn more from trying something and failing than not trying at all. Olivia was active in many activities at Ninilchik. She invested time helping with elementary basketball and also took care of the books for many of the middle school and high school basketball games. Olivia lettered in both volleyball and basketball all four years. She was a quiet leader; she led more by example than by her words. She always had a kind word when she met up with the younger kids in the elementary.
Olivia has dreams of becoming a nurse—a field where caring and kindness is important as knowing how to perform your job with excellence. She will be attending Kenai Peninsula College before transitioning to the UAA pre-nursing program.
