Approximately 1700 family, relatives, and friends were on hand to help celebrate the momentous occasion. Included in the participants for the evening were Mr. Edwin Bowser, Superintendent of Schools, Mrs. Vanessa Sral, Director of Education, Mr. Curt Vasas, Senior High School Principal, Mr. Brian Kostan, Senior High School Assistant Principal, Mr. Ed Alexander, Junior High School Principal, Dr. Laura Miller, Junior High School Dean of Students, Mr. Lucas Jacobs, Elementary Principal and Mr. Larry Celmer, Elementary Assistant Principal. Also present were Directors of the School Board, Mr. Fred Russell, Mrs. Tracy Helsel, Mr. John Bopp, Mrs. Corina Long, Mr. Robert MacTavish, Dr. Richard Knavel and Dr. Timothy Ondrejek. Representing the District faculty and staff of the District were Mrs. Patrice Stiffler, Mr. David Satka, and Mrs. Becky Wehner. Claudia Shrefler, President of the Class of 2017 and Co-Valedictorian, was the first student to speak and gave the welcoming address adding humor and substance to her message discussing the many adjectives used to describe her generation. Claudia stated that although her generation is sometimes viewed as “lazy, entitled, or technology dependent,” she believes that they should be viewed as a symbol of advancement, adaptability, and hope. The other student speakers were Co-Valedictorian, Jared Wehner, and the Salutatorian of the class, Trevor Smith. Others offering remarks and words of advice and appreciation to the Class of 2017 were Mr. Edwin Bowser, Mrs. Vanessa Sral, and Mr. Curt Vasas. Mrs. Sral spoke of the importance of the word “time.” She stated “the concept of time runs through our every thought and action. Sometimes we don’t realize how much time we’ve spent and how much time has passed because time is so elusive.” She encouraged each graduate to make to most of the time they have been given. Jared spoke using the idea of Cinderella and how struggle, hard work, and a sense of hope can shape your life. When making reference to Cinderella’s fairy godmother, Jared stated “Everyone is different, but we all need to find those people in our lives to whom we can always go.” Trevor talked about finding one’s passion in life. He stated “finding your passion isn’t easy. The hardest part is exploring the many different options. But you must never give up searching.” Mr. Vasas, High School Principal conferred the diplomas with Mr. Kostan, Assistant High School Principal, reading the names of each graduate as they received their diplomas from Board of Education President, Mr. Fred Russell.
