Friends, family and loved ones crowded Wesbanco Arena Sunday to see 409 Wheeling Park Patriots receive their high school diplomas.
Valedictorian Sierra Cirrone, Class President Blake Humphrey and Student Council President Karen Laska, all addressed their fellow students as they finished their final chapter of high school.
"Each of us has a fire in our hearts for something. It is our goal in life to find it and keep it lit," said Karen Laska of the Wheeling Park Student Council.
Local attorney Steven Thomakos was named Wheeling Park's "Outstanding Alumnus" and scholarships were also handed out to graduating students. The Class of 20-14 also donated their excess budget, toward a new computer lab.
