The First White Valedictorian at Historically Black Voorhees College

In the spring of 2008 Joshua Packwood was the first white man to be valedictorian at Morehouse College in Atlanta. He was an economics major with a 4.0 grade point average. He landed a job on Wall Street.

This spring Victoria Paun is the first white valedictorian at Voorhees College, the historically black educational institution in Denmark, South Carolina. Paun, a native of Bucharest, Romania, maintained a 4.0 average throughout her four years at the college. At Voorhees, she was captain of the debate team and was a member of the concert choir. A history major, Paun is planning to go to graduate school.
