The Last Class of North Penn High School
In the wake of North Penn High School’s doors closing, their Class of 2014 and the community came together one last time to celebrate the spirit of the school.
The students proceeded triumphantly into The Pit, an iconic and fitting location for the ceremony. After the invocation and welcome, the students commemorated the school’s spirit with a unique observance – the lighting of a unity candle.
This was followed by an address from the salutatorian, Victoria Bubacz. The Valedictorian, Rebekah Erway, also spoke to her class, encouraging them to not hold onto bitter feelings as they move on, but rather to forgive and remember – it’s the people who make North Penn special.
The Keynote Speaker for North Penn’s graduation ceremony was Mr. Ivan John Erway, a North Penn graduate from 1982 and school board member. He encouraged the students to follow the Golden Rule, a principal they learned at North Penn – to treat others as you would like to be treated. “No matter what happens to this building,” said Erway, “Remember the lessons of North Penn – to strive, to do and be and work out the Golden Rule…North Penn lives…”
Finally, the moment everyone was waiting for – the North Penn Class of 2014 received their diplomas, fully prepared for their next journey.
Wellsboro Home Page would like to congratulate North Penn’s graduates, and hopes and prays for the best in their future endeavors.
