Congrats to Our 2016 DI Valedictorian!

By: Kate Grimes

Thank you to all of our talented applicants who applied to become our 2016 DI Valedictorian. We received more than 25 creative applications and choosing a winner was no easy feat.

This year we would like to congratulate Zayna Pieper from Calhan, Colorado, Destination Imagination’s 2016 Valedictorian! She is a leader for the DI Teen Advisory Board and participates in her high school Student Council and Student Advisory Board. She plays First Chair Flute in TCA Wind Ensemble, is a member of the National Honor Society, and is a HOBY Presidential Service Award Winner (awarded by President Obama) for her volunteer activities. Check out Zayna’s amazing video below to learn about her 12 year DI journey and the many ways DI has impacted the life of a “Princess.”

We also want to congratulate this year’s DI Scholars, who will each receive a scholarship:

  • Dakotah Mann: Littleton, Colorado
  • Anisha Cheema: British Columbia, Canada
  • Matthew Black: British Columbia, Canada
  • McKenzie Finnerty: Stoughton, Massachusetts
