Class of 2014

Saturday was graduation day for 48 seniors of Hershey High School. A large crowd of family and friends attended the ceremonies held in the gymnasium.  

Lori Evans directed the band as they played “Voyage to the Edge of the World” followed by “Pomp and Circumstance”.

After the processional, class president Tanner Kosmicki gave opening remarks to the audience. He thanked the teachers for all their hard work preparing the students for this day.

“We would also like to thank our parents. Without them we wouldn't be here today…literally.” said Kosmicki.

In honor speeches, valedictorian Mariah DaMoude highlighted many events of their class.

“As I remember” DaMoude said, “our class was voted the most unlikely to succeed when we were in junior high.” As the crowd chuckled, she said “well look at us now, we did make it.”    

Following her address, salutatorian Tayler Baker told of things they enjoyed together and highlighted achievements in the class room and on the athletic fields.

The high school chorus performed “May it Be,” directed by Teresa Rotert. The senior chorus joined as they performed for the last time in their school career.  

Student counselor Leona McConnell described the awards bestowed on the class. More than $300,000 in scholarship monies was shared among 31 class members.

Principal Michael Troxel announced that the class completed all requirements of the school district and became eligible for graduation. Superintendent Jane Davis presented diplomas with assistance of school board members Roger Stockall and Floydene Brown.

The graduates walked through the audience handing flowers to parents and friends. A video featuring a baby picture and senior picture of each student was shown. Caps were tossed into the air, and the 2014 graduating class was dismissed and marched out as the band played “The Crown and the Glory.”
