An informative sampling focused on herbs and tea with an occasional sprinkling of fairy dust and a glimpse into family activities too. The contributions to this blog is the combined effort created by the sisters of The Rosemary House and Sweet Remembrances.
The 144th Annual Commencement ceremonies of Mechanicsburg Area Senior High School took place last night, Tuesday, May 29th at the Sollenberger Sports Center at Messiah College and we had one very excited graduate in attendance. Congratulations, Angelica Bertha Reppert Brill! You did it!
Sporting her hand decorated mortarboard with a favorite quote from the musical Hamilton, a few photos were snapped in the gardens before heading to the graduation.
The teachers in their scholarly garb lined the hallway and applauded and recognized the students accomplishments before they entered the arena where proud family and friends gathered to celebrate this momentous occasion. Angelica was spotted among the sea of maroon gowns and the moment captured as they waited for the vivid strains of Pomp and Circumstance to begin.
With front row stadium seats, we had the best opportunity to see the soon-to-be graduates proudly march past as they entered the arena. An evening that acknowledged 13 years of hard work that passed much too quickly for parents and not quick enough for students, coupled with uplifting student speeches that demonstrated wisdom and poise in presentation, amazing musical talent, and words of hope and inspiration from the administration for these young adults marked the end of an era and the beginning of a bright future. A milestone achieved.
Onward and upward!
