Shaler seniors prepare for life after high school
On June 13, more than 380 Shaler Area High School seniors celebrated the end of their high school careers in the district's 2014 commencement.
Commencement was held at the Shaler Area Titan Stadium during which valedictorian Casey Kinol, salutatorian Lance Corbett and class President Samuel Bartsch addressed the Class of 2014.
Many of the high school's graduating seniors have committed to postgraduation plans.
Of this year's class, 85 percent will attend college: 214 of this year's graduates, or 56 percent, will attend a four-year college, and 111 graduates, or 29 percent, will attend a two-year college or other postsecondary program. This year, 22 graduates, or 6 percent, will enter the work force after graduation; 17 graduates, or 4 percent, will enter the military; and 20 graduates, or 5 percent, are undecided.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
