List of graduates and picture slideshow below
May 27, 2022- Congratulations to Elizabethtown Area High School's Class of 2022. The District saluted the 321 graduating seniors at its annual Commencement Ceremony held on Thursday, May 27, at LCBC-Manheim Campus.
The soon-to-be-alums, clad in blue robes, entered the stadium to "Pomp and Circumstance" and a rousing ovation from family and friends. Before receiving their diplomas, Dr. Michele Balliet, superintendent of schools; Terry Seiders, school board president; and Dr. Jason D’Amico, high school principal, offered words of encouragement and congratulations to the graduates.
Balliet welcomed the guests in attendance and encouraged the Class of 2022 to build on their already impressive personal and collective legacies.
"Regardless of your path, please continue to develop and nurture healthy, productive life goals and be willing to continue to put in the hard work and effort in achieving them,” said Dr. Balliet.
Seiders followed Dr. Balliet and congratulated the Class of 2022 and hoped their years in EASD prepared them for their futures.
“We hand you the keys, and we take a back seat. And we hope you have the courage to begin,” said Seiders. “As Atticus Finch says, what good are wings without the courage to fly?”
Before presenting the diplomas, Dr. D’Amico wished the graduates great success as they embark on life's next adventure.
"I hope you walk out those doors and into a greater world and that you know what you value, you live your values, and understand there is only one like you in the whole world," said Dr. D’Amico.
Bryan Murray, valedictorian, and Rylee Bender, salutatorian, spoke to their classmates after receiving recognition for achieving the highest and second-highest weighted grade point averages respectively during their four years of high school.
Bender encouraged her classmates to remember the many lessons learned during their years at EAHS.
"Remember the good times and bad times, the lessons learned and content forgotten, the friends lost and friends made, because these are the things that got you to where you are today,” said Bender.
Murray paid tribute to his classmates and the many teachers he had during his years in the Elizabethtown Area School District.
"Thank you students, faculty, staff, and families, because it has been my privilege to be a part of this amazing community that I know will support me, as well as all my fellow classmates, as we start our next journey to create new memories," said Murray.
The final student speaker was Ainsely Raybold, Class of 2022 class speaker, who shared her pride in being an Etown Bear.
"Just remember- once a bear, always a bear: be loud, be proud, be positive,” said Raybold. “If you abide by these three principles, I can guarantee that 10 out of 10 students in this room will lead a life greater than what we could have ever imagined."
Class officers for 2022 were Ella Dehmey, president; Allison Evans and Ashley Geesey, co-vice presidents; Kaitlyn Crum, secretary; Bryan Murray, treasurer; Kyveli Georges and Victoria Bressler, marketing; and Abigail Franz, historian. Class co-advisors were high school teachers Gina Lassandro and Ryan Musser.
Administrators, faculty, staff, and members of the board of school directors extend their best wishes to the Class of 2022.
