The Saucon Valley Class of 2016 received a warm, heartfelt sendoff by family, friends, faculty and staff who packed the high school auditorium Friday evening.
Approximately 175 seniors graduated in a ceremony that was highlighted by a standing ovation for one student, Carli Ziegler, who overcame a physical disability to walk across the stage to receive her diploma.
Valedictorian Annika Sundlof and Salutatorian Jacob Holland both delivered commencement addresses; football coach and teacher Matt Evancho was selected by students to deliver the faculty address; and senior class president Braden Hudak welcomed the audience to the graduation exercises. Principal Eric Kahler and Superintendent Dr. Monica McHale-Small also spoke.
