Kyle Martin received a 4-year full-ride scholarship and graduated with a 4.6 GPA. In his speech titled “The 16th Second,” Martin spoke of his regrets about becoming valedictorian.
Martin graduated in 2019 from the King’s Academy in Palm Beach, Florida. Things took an unexpected turn as Martin began speaking. He said, “I’m well aware that this is kind of a downer speech but I don’t care…” after which the video went viral on social media.
The King’s Academy takes pride in being a private Christian academy for students in grades 4-12. Their homepage shows the name of the school as, “The King’s Academy: Where Christ is King.”
