BLACK HISTORY: First Black Valedictorian From The University of Notre Dame


A Gary, Indiana native will make history next month as the first black valedictorian from the University of Notre Dame.

Katie Washington, 21, is a biology major and minor in Catholic social teaching with a 4.0 GPA.

"I am humbled," said Washington to the Northwest Indiana Times. "I am in a mode of gratitude and thanksgiving right now."

University officials said they couldn't recall ever having a black valedictorian, and don't keep record of their race.
