MUNCY – The future was calling to 78 high school seniors who graduated from Muncy High School Friday night, June 2, 2107.

The traditional front lawn procession was led by the top five honor students of the class, Justin Kramer, Caleb Smith, Noah Hoffman, Sarah Miller and Christopher Titman.

After the Star Spangled Banner sung by Alexa Hann, Christopher Titman introduced the program and student speakers. Sarah Miller spoke on ‘The Past’, Noah Hoffman on “The Present” and Caleb Smith, Salutatorian, spoke on “The Future” quoting world famous Wilson Greatbatch who invented the implantable pacemaker and saved millions of lives. “I’m beginning to think I may not change the world, but I’m still trying,” he said. Smith also wrote the class poem “The Journey.”

Valedictorian, Justin Kramer quoted Dr. Seuss, “You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And you are the one who’ll decide where to go.”

Diplomas and congratulations were handed out by high school principal, Tim Welliver; school board president, Scott McLean; superintendent, Craig Skaluba; and guidance counselors Erik Berthold and Jeanne Rogan.
