Waltham High School seniors graduate this weekend. We’d like to recognize one who has made a difference.

Jeanmax Valere is the president of the WHS student council.

During April vacation, he and fellow student leaders cleaned up the high school grounds.

He has also played basketball in Waltham for many years and was a shooting guard for the Hawks boys varsity team.

In late June, Jeanmax will represent the USA in the Argentina Basketball Series in Buenos Aires.

He was selected by Student Athlete World from a national pool based on a combination of his athletic ability, academics, leadership and character.

“I’m beyond thankful and blessed for this opportunity and I’m excited for what the future may hold,” he said.

In the fall, Jeanmax will attend UMass Amherst to study biology.

Congrats and all the best on the trip and in the future!
