NP-Liberty Commencement 2019
Tassels were turned, hats were tossed, and diplomas were awarded, as the Class of 2019 celebrated the biggest milestone of their lives on June 8, 2019. Families, friends, and faculty members watched in anticipation as the graduates were honored for their hard work and accomplishments. To set the tone for the occasion, the North Penn-Liberty High School Band began by playing the well-known tune, Pomp and Circumstance, as the graduates processed to the stage. Next, the senior chorus members sang the National Anthem and Kelly Egrie led the invocation.
Several guest speakers inspired the graduates by providing them with wise words for this new chapter in their lives. First, Valedictorian Katelyn Feaster offered several pieces of advice, which included working hard, putting our phones down to live in the moment, finding what we enjoy doing, and taking the opportunities that are presented to us. Second, Mr. Aaron Ohnmeiss presented four pieces of advice to have a happy, productive life:
1. Believe in something bigger than yourself
2. Make sure your spouse is your best friend
3. Get a job you like
4. Live well
Next, Superintendent Mr. Sam A. Rotella, Jr. provided several pieces of advice to the graduating class, including the importance of thanking those who have helped you along the way, being open-minded, and being empathetic toward others.
The senior chorus members performed the song, “As Long As I Still Have Music,” and afterwards, the Valedictorian (Katelyn Feaster) and Salutatorian (Dylan Williamson) were presented with awards to honor their academic accomplishments.
Finally, the special moment arrived – the Class of 2019 proudly walked across the stage to receive their diplomas and begin the next chapter of their lives. Home Page would like to congratulate the Class of 2019 for their accomplishments and wish them all the best in the future!
