Saucon’s Class of 2015 Embraces the Future

Est. Read Time: 7 mins

More than 180 students graduated from Saucon Valley High School Friday night in a memorable ceremony that was punctuated with much laughter and a few tears. The ceremony was noteworthy for being superintendent Monica McHale-Small’s first since she arrived at Saucon last summer, and she reminisced on her first impressions of the school district, which she called an exceptionally nice place. It was also noteworthy for who wasn’t there. Jose Angel Mojica–a Saucon student who died two years ago from acute lymphoblastic leukemia–would have graduated with the Class of 2015 had he lived. In recognition of that fact, Mojica’s parents were presented with his diploma, and principal Eric Kahler commented that all the members of the senior class had signed a yearbook that would also be given to them.

Correction: A previous version of this story included an incorrect starting time for the ceremony. The graduation ceremony will begin at 7 p.m.

Saucon Valley High School’s Class of 2015 will graduate on Friday, June 12. The ceremony–which will be held in the high school auditorium–will begin at 7 p.m., and there will be parking restrictions in place to accommodate what’s expected to be a large turnout. According to a news alert from the Saucon Valley School District, all parking spots in the first two rows of the main high school “student” lot will be reserved for handicapped parking access. “If possible, we ask families to carpool to the school to reduce the amount of cars at the school so that all parking needs can be met,” the news release said.
