Shady Side Academy celebrated the 125 students in the Class of 2019 at Senior School commencement on May 31.

Bagpiper George Balderose led the processional, playing “The March of the King of Laois” and the Chamber Choir sang “You Are The New Day.”

Lisa Schroeder, incoming president and CEO of The Pittsburgh Foundation, gave the graduation address and graduate Hanwen “Hank” Lin spoke to his fellow seniors about curiosity, creativity and celebrating the human spirit.

Senior Andrew Sveda announced the class gift — a commissioned piece of artwork on the six pillars near the corridor of the new Glimcher Tech and Design Hub. Sveda said the remaining $9,000 raised by the class was gifted to the budget of Lillian Grate, the Academy’s director of equity, inclusion and community relations, to further her work.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
