RCI Valedictorians 

 

rci valedictorian sign

 Listed below are the individuals who were chosen by the peers to serve as Renfrew Collegiate Valedictorian for their respective graduating years.

Our goal is to provide graduation portraits of all RCI valedictorians where possible. 

The column named "Post-RCI" indicates the institution where each individual studied the year immediately after their graduation year (not the institution they graduated from).

If you have more information or better quality images of any valedictorians, please contact Adam Noack at RCI at noacka@rcdsb.on.ca

* Unable to locate valedictorians for the years between 1932 and 1953.  There may have been a hiatus during the Great Depression and the Second World War.

** Not sure if valedictorian was shared these years

*** Year that OAC was eliminated hence it was the “double cohort” year of graduation
