Father John Moineau, the president of our Board of Trust Administrators (the five sponsoring pastors) shared words of inspiration and presented the awards. Each pastor presented their graduate with their certificate. The class had chosen as their motto this quote:
"Friends are like your favorite books:
you keep them with you
until you know them by heart."
Being a part of a small class allows you to know and cherish the memories that you have of your friends, and I am sure that Cole, Claire, Hannah, Katherine, Lacey, Nolan, Mary Alice, Carley and Layla will find that true. As our Principal, Mrs. Sandi Stonebraker expressed in the program -
"We wish our eighth grade students the best as they move on to a new school. Our thoughts and prayers go with you always.
God bless you."
To that sentiment I add my own
If you had an Eighth Grade Graduation, do you remember it?
I do ... but could not find the picture of our class standing on the steps of the old Saint Joseph Church in Uniontown. Our Assistant at the time, Father Anthony Wozniak, is one of our retired priests.
