Dear L-S Community:
Congratulations to the Lampeter-Strasburg High School Class of 2020 on achieving an educational milestone last weekend through our commencement events! We are so proud of them and know that they are each destined to make a positive impact and change in this world and our community in the future. We wish them all the best of luck in the future and trust that they know that they are forever Pioneers! Thank you Class of 2020!
I hope that the Class of 2020 will forever cherish their memories from the last thirteen years at Lampeter-Strasburg and fondly remember their high school graduation experience! We have so many incredible people to thank for the role that they played in helping to make all of the experiences for the Class of 2020 a reality. We would be remiss if we did not thank the members of the Class of 2020 Task Force that helped to coordinate each of these events. The Task Force included Dr. Westphal, Mrs. Clark, Mr. Houck, Mr. Titter, Mrs. McCanna, Mrs. Swarr, Mrs. Shehan, Mr. Spangler, Mr. Shockey, and several members of the senior class. The Class of 2020 Task Force was pivotal in helping to pull extensive resources, coordinate events, and spent countless hours in planning each of our graduation events. I can’t thank this team enough for all of their dedication and support!
I would like to thank Mrs. Harnish and Mr. Sloss for helping to film and produce our senior awards ceremony and our virtual graduation ceremony; they are very dedicated and extremely talented in video production and they were able to help produce professional quality video ceremonies for us. I would also like to thank seniors Gabe Sanderson (Music Video Production), Madeline Helm, and Jillian Pontz (Arrangement) for their production of the music video, Brand New in the graduation ceremony. I would also like to thank Sofia Campbell (Senior Tribute Video) for her tribute video to the senior class, both the music video and tribute video perfectly chronicled the senior year for the L-S Class of 2020. We truly have so many wonderful and talented seniors at L-SHS!
The graduation community parade was an absolute team effort and we have so many people to thank that helped to bring that plan to fruition, including the West Lampeter Police Department, Strasburg Borough Police Department, Lampeter Fire Company, Willow Street Fire Company, Strasburg Fire Company, and the Refton Fire Company. We would also like to extend a big thank you to Shultz Transportation and our Transportation Coordinator, Mr. Landis for helping to coordinate our yard sign delivery and parade transportation; each of these events could not have occurred without their support. The graduation parade was so special and I am hopeful will be a lasting memory for the Class of 2020! The overwhelming community support for this event made it so special and memorable for our seniors, and the campus finale could not have been done without our amazing L-S staff!
I would like to thank our graduation senior speakers Nora Holmes, Tobias Leaman, and Jess Herr for their words of inspiration and positivity for the Class of 2020! While, we had to delay our Drive-Through until Saturday, we couldn’t have asked for a better day on Saturday to celebrate our seniors as they received their diplomas. I would like to thank Perfect Pots for the plants and flowers at last Saturday’s event, and hope that each senior and their family enjoyed this event and the multiple photo opportunities. A big thank you to the faculty and staff that helped to make memory lane one that the seniors will soon not forget, and only positively contributed to the Class of 2020’s memory of their high school graduation. One big, final thank you to the parents, family, friends, and L-S Community members for your unwavering support and commitment to our school, community, and most importantly, the Class of 2020, thank you! We Are L-S, We Are Family, and We Are All In This Together!
With sincere thanks and gratitude,
Benjamin J. Feeney, Ed.D.
