Congratulations to the Class of 2023

The Neshannock High School auditorium was overflowing with friends, family, faculty, and thirteen years of memories on the evening of June 7, 2023, for 64th annual commencement ceremony.  The Neshannock Band played the traditional Pomp and Circumstance as our graduates processed down the aisles of the auditorium.

High School Principal, Mr. Luca Passarelli, welcomed the guests of honor and all in attendance to the memorable evening prior to introducing the distinguished alumnus, Mr. Edward “Ted” Lewis, NHS Class of 1963. During his address, Ted shared nuggets of wisdom with the Class of 2023 based on his own personal and professional experiences.  Students were encouraged to reflect on his advice regarding mentoring, leading, and learning.

Following Mr. Lewis’ address of the graduates, Salutatorian, Camdyn Cole, and Valedictorian, Rylah Watts, engaged the Class of 2023 with personalized messages, advice on living a life with purpose, and hopes for future successes. District Superintendent, Dr. Terence P. Meehan, offered the graduates congratulatory words and expressed the honor of being the newest members of the distinguished Lancer Alumni Community prior to accepting the class and certifying their graduation.

Following the conferring of their diplomas, the graduates ceremoniously shifted their tassels to signify their status as alumni.  The celebration continued in the high school gymnasium where the graduates tossed their caps high into the air!  Then, per tradition, an all-alumni photograph was taken.  It was inspirational to see so many generations of Lancers in one photograph!

Many hands worked together to honor our graduates.  Special thanks to the Board of Education, Administration, faculty, staff, and student government.

Congratulations and Best Wishes to the Class of 2023!
