The willingness to succeed in the face of adversity was the recurring theme as multiple speakers celebrated the Class of 2022 during Steel Valley’s commencement ceremony at William V. Campbell Field in Munhall on Wednesday, June 1.
The Steel Valley High School Class of 2022 was awarded over $275,000 in college scholarships during the district’s annual honors awards ceremony on Thursday, May 5.
With less than a month until graduation, it's time to recognize and celebrate the Steel Valley Top 10 - Abigail Tester, Brooke Weber, Emma Koval, Dacia Hruska, Madisyn Faux, Kelsey Salopek, Justin Chau, Molly Krupa, salutatorian Riley Furrick, and valedictorian Benjamin Novotny.
First graders spent some time last week enjoying the nice weather and reading a good book in the Maria Heddleston Reading Area, which is located outside of Park Elementary on the corner of Main Street and Cambria Street. Students can take books, exchange books, and bring books that everyone is welcome to read. As a reminder, no one should be climbing or jumping on the benches. We want to keep it nice for everyone to enjoy!
Ben Novotny is the Steel Valley Class of 2022 valedictorian, while Riley Furrick is the Class of 2022 salutatorian. More on the SV Top 10 is coming soon, but in the meantime, Ben and Riley shared some Steel Valley memories and experiences.
The High School Student Council showed their appreciation for their teachers and staff during Teacher Appreciation Week by creating the “Our Teachers & Staff are STARS” (Successfully Teaching And Reaching Students) wall where students hung special notes to let their teachers and staff know some reasons why they are appreciated.
Congratulations to Abigail Tester on her recent commitment to play Volleyball at Washington and Jefferson College. Abby is a three sport athlete at Steel Valley High School where she has excelled in Volleyball, Basketball, and Softball.
We wish Abby all the best next year.
On Wednesday April 6th, SADD Student of the Year and SV SADD Co-President Benjamin Novtony was invited to the state capital to participate in a press conference to help pass House Bill #37. This Bill is to make using a handheld cellphone while driving a primary offense. Ben has been working hard with the PA DUI Association all year and has completed many service projects for SADD and for Steel Valley. At the press conference, parents whose children were killed by distracted drivers attended the event and shared their stories to show why this legislation is so important. Steel Valley SADD is very proud of Ben for all his efforts. Remember to put the phone down, and drive safely!
Congratulations to Matthew Marrone on his recent commitment to play Football at Geneva College. Matt is a two sport athlete at Steel Valley High School where he has excelled in both Football and Volleyball.
We wish Matt all the best next year at Geneva.
Congratulations to the Steel Valley Lady Ironmen Varsity Soccer Team. The team members and their coaches received WPIAL Championship rings through a generous donation from Mr. Joseph Ducar, President of the Campbell Foundation. The rings were presented to the team and coaches today in the high school auditorium. "We are very proud of our team and our coaching staff. They have brought pride and spirit to our school district and to our community. They are truly a class act organization. The generosity of Mr. Ducar and the Campbell Foundation are amazing as always. Joe is truly an advocate for our students. The rings will be a great keepsake for our student-athletes to commemorate their WPIAL Championship season,” said Steel Valley Athletic Director Shawn McCallister.
The Queen of Hearts stopped by to visit her loyal kindergarten subjects today, and everyone had a wonderful time! The kids always love seeing their Queen, but today was extra special because the students acted out "The Secret in the Tear," a story written by the Queen herself!!!
Besides having a ton of fun, students also learned about how important it is to be responsible. Everyone at Park is looking forward to seeing our Queen again soon!
