The Agape Christian School valedictorian said she wants to travel the world as an English teacher while the school’s salutatorian said he wants to pursue a master’s degree as soon as possible.
Judy Liang, the school’s Class of 2019 high school valedictorian, and Peter Wang, the high school salutatorian, both eye the Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina to take up English education and mechanical engineering, respectively.
“I want to travel the world and not stay in only one place,” Liang said in an interview. “I thank God for giving me this chance to study in this school. I am very honored.”
Liang wants to purse an education degree in English because she experienced teaching piano and English in Sunday school in her home country of China.
“I believe it is a good career for me, I enjoy being a teacher,” she said.
Wang, on the other hand, wants to pursue a master’s degree immediately after getting a degree in mechanical engineering.
“I plan to get my master’s right after college and find a job later,” he said in an interview.
Wang would be going to the Bob Jones University as well, but he said he has yet to decide on a school for his master’s degree.
“I like [cars]. I just really like automobiles,” he said.
“I thank my teachers…and my classmates, all of them. They all helped me and, without them, I won’t be here today,” he said.
Both Liang and Wang had 11 classmates this year.
For middle school, the valedictorian honors went to Elvira Zhang while the salutatorian honors went to Jason Cao.
