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.
