Dublin High School Senior Awards Night Class of 2012: “I am Dublin High”

May 24, 2012

Class of 2012 Valedictorian Andrew Song

Dublin High School’s annual Senior Awards Night filled Dublin’s Shannon Center with students, parents, educators and members of the Dublin High community. Over $1,800,000 in scholarships and awards were presented Dublin High School Class of 2012 students for their achievements at Dublin High, including 35 merit scholarships for colleges nationwide.

Included in the event was the traditional passing of the gavel ceremony where outgoing senior and student body president Tatum Wheeler (attending UC Berkeley this Fall) introduced incoming student body president Samantha Theard.

Among the many seniors winning awards, Rebecca Beasley was accepted into the highly selective U.S. Air Force Academy. Rebecca was recognized with a special presentation by a representative of the Air Force Academy. Over 12,000 applicants competed for a position in the Academy. The Dublin High School Class of 2012 Valedictorian Andrew Song, who will attend the University of Chicago to study economics, was also awarded a National Merit Scholarship. Raymond Liu, who will be attending Stanford University, was also the recipient of a National Merit Scholarship.

Class of 2012 Student Body President Tatum Wheeler prepared the third annual edition of the popular “I am Dublin High” video (see below) featuring nearly 70 Dublin High School Class of 2012 seniors sharing their post-high school plans (in under 5 minutes). The full list of colleges that offered admission to Dublin High Class of 2012 seniors, which includes Stanford, Brown, Duke, Purdue, US Airforce Academy, every University of California (UC), every CSU campus and many more is available here.
