Penn’s 56th graduating class will be turning their tassels tonight at Notre Dame’s Purcell Pavilion. Finals are finishing up, graduation parties are being planned, and farewells are being said. But before we say our final farewell to Penn High School, remember all the memories made. You made friends, you lost friends. You had great classes, and the classes you regret taking.

Here’s some important things to remember before you can walk across that stage and bid your high school years adieu.

Congratulations for surviving 12 years of school. SomeĀ of us will go out into the world to do other things and explore other places, while some of us will stay local and take in the atmosphere we’ve become familiar with for as long as we can remember. Others will go off to defend the country we claim loud and proud. PNN congratulates all of you for the big steps you’re about to take in life.
