Valedictorian Club (8th Grade)

The Valedictorian Club (V-Club) was the first program established by Be A Leader in 2006 with sixty 8th-grade students from Roosevelt Elementary School District (RESD) and has since then expanded into the Murphy Elementary School District (Murphy). Once referred to as “Valedictorians,” these students start to develop a sense of accomplishment and realize the great potential within themselves. The Valedictorian Club’s (V-Club) focus is on the development of leadership skills, providing its participants with the tools to break down the barriers preventing them from finding a college degree a realistic goal and empowering students with the knowledge to plan their high school and college educational pursuits. The V-Club program accomplishes its goals through its 8 workshop series where participants learn how to use high school as a platform for entry to and success in college.

V-Club accepts applications from 7th graders during their spring semester for the following academic year. Our recruitment period is currently closed but check back with us in the Spring 2018 for recruitment for the 2018/19 academic year.
