Best Answer

You create an "honors and awards" section. Because you achieved the highest academic distinction, make sure you include this on your resume. It says much about your dedication, commitment, and perseverance to achieve goals and objectives. Thus, it is no small thing. Remember, the resume is the time to toot your horn! Include all your achievements.

Is summa cum laude a higher distinction than valedictorian?

Cum laude means 'with honor', magna cum laude is 'with high honor', and summa cum laude means 'with the greatest honor'. These designations are granted to every graduate who meets a required grade-point average, so several students in a class, or even an entire class, could graduate cum laude, magna cum laude, or summa cum laude. The valedictorian is the student with the highest academic rank in the class, so you would expect he would at least be a cum laude graduate. But if you have a class where no one has over a B average, there will still be a valedictorian but he will not be graduated with honors.
