WAYNESBURG, Penn. – Elliott Kimball, a social science-political science graduate from Hardwick, Vt., was named one of three Waynesburg University valedictorians for the Class of 2023. He is the son of Tod and Amy Kimball.
“For me, being named valedictorian was a chance to acknowledge how fortunate I have been,” said Kimball. “It was nice to be honored for my hard work academically, but I also know that it is not something I could have accomplished alone. I am very thankful for the faculty, family and friends that helped me get there.”
During his time at Waynesburg, Kimball was a Stover Scholar and served as a member of the Student Senate.
This past semester, he participated in the Scholarship and Christianity in Oxford (SCIO) study abroad experience in Oxford, England, through Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU) GlobalEd.
