School: Centre County Christian Academy

Graduating class: 2016

Number of graduates: 3

Colors: School colors are blue, white and gold. The three graduates wore white robes with gold tassels.

Principal: Kristy Smith

Where: Calvary Bible Church

Student speakers: Hannah Boughton, Abigail Maholic, Alexis Rossman

Keynote speaker: Kenneth Gore

Funny moment: Gore gave 20-year “predictions” for each of the three graduates. He predicted Maholic, the valedictorian, would become founder and CEO of “Kitty City: The largest worldwide cat adoption corporation in history.” Titters trembled tassels.

Favorite memories: Rossman, who plans on attending Penn Tech for nursing, said one of her favorite memories involved a campfire, a game called “scallops” and hanging out with friends after winning a soccer game. Both Boughton and Maholic reminisced about playing soccer and basketball together. Maholic plans on attending Summit University to study early childhood and elementary education.

Tips for underclassmen: Boughton, who will join Rossman at Penn Tech for nursing, told underclassmen to “just keep your head up, work hard and it will be worth it in the end.”
