High School - Class of 2022 Commencement Ceremony (Rain Date #1)
6/2/2022, 6:00 PM 8:00 PM
Mars Area High School Parking Lots

Mars Area High School will hold its Class of 2022 Commencement Ceremony & Walk at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 1, in the school’s parking lots.

Pre-recorded speeches will be offered by Dr. Mark Gross, superintendent; Lindsay Rosswog, principal; Sarah Hooper, student speaker*; Luke Smelko, student-selected speaker*; and Sydney Carr and Alexandra Organ, Class of 2022 co-presidents. Other Class of 2022 officers are Kristin Bayuk, vice president; Leana Cuzzocrea, secretary; and Katie Ball, treasurer.

* Mars Area High School does not announce its valedictorian and salutatorian until after the last day of school when all final grades have been tabulated. Therefore, those students who are invited to speak at graduation may not be the valedictorian and salutatorian.

During the ceremony, each graduate will receive his/her diploma, then walk along a marked route through the high school’s parking lots, passing their peers and families. While it is not required, participants are encouraged to wear a face covering (mask or shield) and to maintain social distancing, where possible.

All graduates and their families have been assigned one parking spot, for one vehicle only. Vehicles without a provided “graduation tag” will not be admitted to the High School campus.

In the event of light rain, the event will be held as scheduled. If necessary, a Rain Date is scheduled on Thursday, June 2. For more information, visit
