Pioneer Valley High School arrived at two homes Monday morning to personally recognize the Valedictorian and Salutatorian of the Class of 2020

Principal Shanda Herrera greeted Valedictorian Naomi Mau and Salutatorian Damian Magana. They received balloons, certificates and commencement medals during the social distancing experience.


“Both of these students have been leaders throughout their high school career and our staff is so proud of their accomplishments,’’ Herrera said.

Mau will attend UC Santa Cruz and major in environmental engineering. Magana will attend UCLA and major in mechanical engineering. Mau’s GPA is 4.37 and Magana’s is 4.36.

The Valedictorian and Salutatorian are the two highest academic achievers in a high school and the awards are based on a formula calculating GPAs, number of A.P. and other honor courses taken, and the grades received in those classes throughout a student’s four years in high school.
