On June 13, Mt. Lebanon High School held its 104th Commencement. Despite the rain, there were 441 happy graduates and a stadium full of proud parents and families. Special thanks go to High School Principal Brian McFeeley, his team and everyone involved in organizing the beautiful ceremony, including the high school Guidance Office and the District Facilities and Technology departments. It was, to quote Mr. McFeeley, " A night for the ages."  The highlight of the evening was Commencement Speaker, Will Buerger, who gave a pitch perfect speech, urging his fellow grads to take a breath, enjoy the moment (even as it rained) and smile—good advice for us all. Watch a short video of  graduation.
