On Tuesday, June 5, Glen Weyl ’03 gave the 2007 Valedictory Oration at Princeton University's Commencement. Weyl’s Choate mentors, economics teacher Ted Hartsoe and mathematics teacher David Doster, attended the ceremony.
Weyl completed all coursework and exams for a doctorate in economics while still a Princeton undergraduate. He will return to Princeton next year to complete his dissertation, and plans to pursue a career as an academic economist.
At his Choate graduation four years ago, he was the recipient of the C. Douglass North ’38 Award for excellence in the study of economics, as well as the William Gardner and Mary Atwater Choate Award for outstanding male scholar. Look for an upcoming profile of Weyl and his extraordinary accomplishments in the summer 2007 issue of Choate Rosemary Hall Bulletin.
