Patriot High Celebrates Graduates

PHS graduate Patriot High School Class of 2019 celebrated their commencement ceremony on May 17 at Hotel Eleganté. Thirty-one graduates were celebrated for their milestone achievement with family and friends present.


“I find Patriot to be an amazing school,” said George Hess, founder & chairman of Vantage Homes Corp. “I love schools that teach skills, they are so important in life today.”


“I would have never imagined I would be standing here giving a graduation speech, I can scratch this off my bucket list,” said Angela Pretzeus, student commencement speaker. “The amount of time each and every one of us has put into this education has been well worth it and we have been waiting for this day for what seems like an eternity. High school will leave me with a bittersweet euphoria.”


Graduates were then presented with their diplomas, followed by a tassel turning.
