Meet Jennifer Chau (above), incoming Georgetown freshman and slighted salutatorian. Chau caused a stir at her New Jersey high school graduation when she ditched her approved speech and publicly accused school administrators of favoritism in selecting the valedictorian.
Apparently, Chau didn’t get top honors because of a dispute over credit for a freshman honors class. More suspiciously, the girl who was ultimately named valedictorian is the daughter of a member of the Board of Education. Chau must think this had something to do with her 2nd place finish, as she mentions school board connections in her speech.
Chau was cut off and booted out after she started to complain about her treatment:”I know this is a community that values education. That is why you need to know what is really going on behind the walls of Mainland’s administrat-”.
The speech is both self-indulgent and interesting. Sounds like a great fit for Georgetown.
