Hopkins valedictorian defers Columbia University a year. Find out why here.

The Hopkins School recently sent 130 seniors into the world, as its 349th graduating class, in a ceremony on the school’s New Haven campus. Sebastian Kann, shown, delivered the Valedictory Address.
Kann, a Westport native and 2009 Cum Laude Society honoree, was voted valedictorian by his classmates. Kann has been accepted to Columbia University of New York, but will defer his acceptance to attend the National Circus School in Montreal, Canada this fall. This year’s commencement marked the beginning of Hopkins School’s 350th Anniversary, which will be celebrated throughout the 2009-2010 school year.
