|01:53PM / Friday, June 04, 2021
SHEFFIELD, Mass. — Mount Everett Regional School has named Cecelia Caldwell as valedictorian and Madison Tinker as salutatorian of the class of 2021. Their profiles are as submitted by Principal Jesse Carpenter.
This year's graduation will occur at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 6, at the high school.
Caldwell is the daughter of Gail Belmuth and Scott Caldwell.
She is a passionate learner with a love for exploration, and is confident, curious, and full of promise. The future holds many exciting possibilities for Caldwell, as she is reliable, committed and has her eye on impacting the world. We have no doubts she will succeed in that endeavor. She has a natural and efficacious way to convey thoughts through her written word.
Caldwell has been a longtime member of the chorus and theater programs, enthralling audiences with her performances. She has
established herself as a quiet but fierce leader through her work in founding the Mount Everett Social Justice League as well as the Southern Berkshire Regional School District Sustainability Coalition. While her interests are varied, when she commits to an idea or goal, she is 100 percent behind it. From her desire to travel and explore to her commitment to animal conservation, volunteerism, and sustainability, Caldwell has the ability and capacity to do or be whatever she chooses.
She will be attending Middlebury College in Vermont in the fall, where she plans to study anthropology and archaeology with a minor in linguistics.
Tinker is the daughter of Sandra and Todd Tinker and sister to Shelby Tinker. She has established herself as a student with a kind and caring soul, perhaps more so than most people realize. She has been an outstanding role model for younger students, her calm and steadfast presence will surely be missed. "Madison" could stand in for the definition of dependable. Tinker is always the first to volunteer and is extremely hard working.
She always goes above and beyond; she is very detailed in her work, taking great pride in the materials that she submits. She always works tirelessly to get it as close to perfection as possible. Tinker has been a longtime member of the high school band and tennis program as well as student government as she is always ready to get involved. As a student and president of the National Honor Society, she has proven herself to be a self-starter, methodically working toward whatever the end goal might be. Tinker has set lofty goals for herself; we are eager to watch her accomplish those goals and have all the confidence in her success.
In the fall, she will be attending Siena College in Loudonville, N.Y., where she plans to study history and eventually work toward her doctorate.
